KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 12 ― A sign purporting to restrict toilets to Muslims at a rest area on the East Coast Expressway (Phase 2) was installed by a contractor without the knowledge of operator LPT2 Sdn Bhd, the firm has said.
The concessionaire added that the sign, which caused controversy among local social media users yesterday, was removed after the firm was informed of the matter.
LPT2 explained that it had ordered the sign at the southbound Bukit Besi rest area to be replaced after it was damaged.
“However, the contractor appointed to service and repair the signboard did not refer to LPT2 before repair works were carried out,” it said in a statement.
“LPT2 apologises for the confusion caused from the installation of the replacement signboard and would continue to monitor to avoid such incidents from reoccurring in the future,” it added, also thanking the public for their feedback.
