SMART is an acronym for Stormwater Management and Road Tunnel, a project under the Federal Government initiated to alleviate the flooding problem in the city centre of Kuala Lumpur. The project is implemented through a joint venture pact between MMC Corp Berhad and Gamuda Berhad with the Department of Irrigation And Drainage Malaysia and the Malaysian Highway Authority as the executing government agencies.
Listed by CNN as one of the world’s Top 10 greatest tunnels, the 9.7km dual-purpose SMART is the world’s first traffic and stormwater management tunnel, commissioned by the Government of Malaysia. The 13.2m-diameter tunnel was constructed with a Slurry Mix-Shield Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) - the latest in Southeast Asia and the second largest in Asia.
