Past Accidents at Menora Tunnel Raise Safety Concerns
This is not the first time an accident has occurred in this area.
The Menora Tunnel has been the site of several accidents in the past.
In 2019, a bus carrying passengers collided with a trailer truck, killing two people and injuring several others.
In 2017, a similar accident occurred when a bus crashed into a trailer truck, causing multiple injuries.
With such heavy traffic, accidents are unfortunately not uncommon.
PLUS Malaysia Berhad has urged all drivers to exercise caution when driving in this area to prevent future accidents.
