Sungai Besi-Ulu Klang Crossing Project Sdn. Bhd (PROLINTAS), the developer for the SUKE construction project in a statement confirmed that there was an incident of a road accident involving a trailer truck carrying more load colliding with the SUKE construction scaffolding late yesterday afternoon.
