Terowong Smart paling inovatif
Oleh Noor Azam Abd Aziz
azam@hmetro.com.my

STORMWATER Management And Road Tunnel (Smart) terpilih memenangi kategori Anugerah Antarabangsa dalam majlis Anugerah Industri Pembinaan British (BCIA) 2008 kerana kecemerlangan dalam inovasi pembinaan dan kejuruteraannya, baru-baru ini.

Gamuda Bhd dalam kenyataan di Kuala Lumpur semalam, menyatakan BCIA anugerah paling berpengaruh dan berprestij dalam industri berkenaan yang dianggap seperti anugerah 'Oscar' industri perfileman untuk pembinaan.

Menurut kenyataan itu, kemenangan Smart berdasarkan penyelesaian kejuruteraan inovatif Smart menyelesaikan dua masalah yang sudah lama wujud di Kuala Lumpur, iaitu banjir di pusat bandar raya akibat limpahan air sungai dan kesesakan jalan raya di bahagian selatan Kuala Lumpur.

Smart, yang siap pada Jun 2007, dimulakan pembinaannya secara usaha sama antara MMC Corporation Bhd dan Gamuda Bhd di bawah penyeliaan kerajaan.

Ia terowong dua fungsi pertama di dunia dan dipilih panel hakim kerana kejuruteraan inovatifnya membantu mengatasi masalah dihadapi Kuala Lumpur iaitu banjir dan kesesakan jalan raya.


Terowong sepanjang 9.7 kilometer (km) itu dihasilkan menggunakan dua mesin pengorek bergerudi 13.2 meter garis pusat.

Kejayaan memenuhi kriteria yang dikehendaki hakim iaitu aspek kejuruteraan, arkitek, reka bentuk pembinaan berkualiti, selamat dan inovatif.

Smart menewaskan empat projek antarabangsa lain iaitu Stesen Arean Bijlmer di Amsterdam, Gelanggan Krikiet Oval Kensington di Barbados, Menara Shin-Marunouchi di Jepun dan Lapangan Terbang Antarabangsa Beijing T3 di China.

Untuk tahun ini, 180 projek di Britain dan antarabangsa dinilai hakim berdasarkan kecemerlangan arkitek dan kejuruteraannya.

International award for SMART
Thursday October 23, 2008
By PRIYA MENON
TRheStar



Yeoh: ‘We had two of these machines and we were very ambitious to run
one of it on our own and we found that ours produced better results.’


THE Stormwater Management and Road Tunnel (SMART) clinched the International award category in the prestigious British Construction Industry award, given out to any British-based projects from around the world, on Oct 8.

“The selection process was a gruelling one and we were one of the 183 projects shortlisted for excellence in innovation and engineering,” said general manager (tunnel division) of Gamuda Engineering Sdn Bhd, Yeoh Hin Kok.

The project is a joint venture between Gamuda and MMC corporation. For Gamuda, the win was nothing short of a surprise.

“We were contending in the International category with five other competitors like the Beijing Terminal three, retail towers in Tokyo and the transportation hub in Amsterdam,” Yeoh added.

He said that the selection process involved a presentation from their side as well as a site visit by the panel of judges.

“They have to look into all the aspects of the construction like how the project satisfies the client as well as its contribution to the community,” he said.

He added that apart from looking at the safety aspects of the tunnel, the panel was intrigued by the idea of a dual purpose tunnel that has traffic as well as water passing through.

“I’m proud to say that the idea came from Gamuda but making that idea into reality, into something workable, was a challenge,” he said.

The tunnel has a 9.7km stormwater tunnel and a 3km motorway tunnel and it is equipped with lighting as well as close circuit cameras.

The Smart Tunnel has three flood modes, ‘no storm’ and the ‘yearly storm’ which allows cars to pass through the first and second deck and the ‘major storm’ that is closed for vehicles so flood waters can pass through all three decks.

Every inch and detail of the tunnel had to be made to endure the pressure of the water when it is released into the tunnel to alleviate the flood problems in Kuala Lumpur during a storm.

“We had to ensure that the equipment can handle the surge of pressure from the water or we will have to fish for the equipment after the stormwater management is over,” he said.

The three-tier tunnel had to be dug through a karstic limestone with a high water table using the tunnel boring machine (TBM).

The TBM is an innovative factory of its own that weighs 25 jumbo jets and is four storeys high.

“We had two of these machines and we were very ambitious to actually run one of it on our own and we found that ours produced better results,” said the elated engineer Yeoh.

To top the achievements by Malaysia, the building of the tunnel also used the mechanised haunched formwork which was Yeoh’s brainchild.

“We have achieved so many things while building this tunnel, now we can venture out to help other countries as well,” he said.

According to the agreement between Gamuda and the government, each time the tunnel is closed for flood management, they should reopen after four days.

“However, we have managed to reopen the tunnel within a day and a half so that the motorists will not be stranded in traffic jams,” Yeoh added.

The Smart Tunnel has been closed for the storm nearly 10 times and each time it has helped alleviate flood woes in Kuala Lumpur.

SMART project sub-contractor takes legal action
Published: 2008/11/15

GAMUDA Bhd (5398) and an MMC Corp Bhd unit have been served with a writ of summons and a statement of claim for failing to pay sub-contractor Wayss & Freytag (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd RM102.37 million awarded by the dispute adjudication board.

Gamuda Bhd and MMC Engineering Group Bhd had entered into a joint venture (JV) to construct the Stormwater Management and Road Tunnel (SMART) project in Kuala Lumpur. The partners awarded Wayss & Freytag the sub-contract, which was later terminated on January 23 2006 because of work delay.

Both the JV partners and subcontractor then submitted claims against each other, in which the final decision was Wayss & Freytag to be paid RM102.37 million.

However, both JV partners are pursuing all available avenues under the provisions of the sub-contract to resist Wayss & Freytag's court action and to realise its original claims against Wayss & Freytag.

SMART tidak dapat bantu

Oleh NORILA DAUD
kota@utusan.com.my


KUALA LUMPUR 4 Mac - Terowong Pengurusan Air Banjir dan Jalan Raya (SMART) tidak dapat membantu mengelak banjir kilat daripada melanda sebahagian kawasan di ibu negara semalam kerana ia hanya mengendalikan kawasan tadahan di sebelah Sungai Klang.

Pengarah Jabatan Pengairan dan Saliran (JPS) Wilayah Persekutuan, Hashim Osman berkata, pada masa yang sama, hujan lebat di luar jangkaan semalam telah mengakibatkan limpahan air di Sungai Gombak, Sungai Batu dan Sungai Keroh - yang kesemuanya di luar kendalian SMART.

Limpahan daripada sungai tersebut katanya, menyebabkan banjir di hampir keseluruhan kawasan di lembangan Sungai Gombak termasuk Jinjang, Gombak dan Padang Merbok.

"Pengurusan air Sungai Gombak, Sungai Batu dan Sungai Keroh dikendalikan oleh Projek Kolam Takungan Banjir Batu/Jinjang yang akan beroperasi sepenuhnya pada pertengahan tahun ini," katanya ketika dihubungi Utusan Malaysia di sini hari ini.

Hashim mengulas kejadian banjir kilat semalam yang mengakibatkan beribu-ribu warga kota terperangkap dalam bangunan, jalan raya dan stesen-stesen bas dan transit aliran ringan (LRT) sementara ratusan kenderaan turut ditenggelami air.

Menurut beliau, empat kolam takungan yang akan beroperasi pada pertengahan tahun ini itu terletak di Jinjang, Kampung Delima, Nanyang dan Taman Wahyu.

Sementara itu, beliau memberitahu, banjir kilat semalam berlaku akibat jumlah curahan hujan sebanyak 70 hingga 80 milimeter (mm) sejam dari pukul 5 petang hingga 7 malam.

Pengarah Pengurusan Projek Kolam Takungan Banjir Batu/Jinjang, Lee Loke Chong pula berkata, banjir kilat semalam akan menjadi lebih dahsyat tanpa bantuan kolam takungan Batu yang telah memulakan operasi sejak tahun lalu.

Katanya, pembinaan projek kolam takungan air tersebut telah 95 peratus siap dan dijangka beroperasi sepenuhnya menjelang pertengahan tahun ini.

Sementara itu, Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur dalam kenyataannya memberitahu, tiga langkah penyelesaian jangka panjang telah diambil bagi mengelakkan banjir kilat berlaku pada masa depan.

Menurut kenyataan itu, banjir boleh dielak dengan terbinanya tiga kolam takungan di Segambut Bahagia yang dijangka siap akhir April ini.

Kenyataan itu menambah, Projek Lencongan Sungai Gombak dan Kolam Takungan Batu telah siap sementara Projek Lencongan Sungai Keroh dan Kolam Takungan Jinjang dijangka siap Jun ini.

DBKL juga sedang membina tujuh projek tebatan banjir di bawah Program Tebatan Banjir Kuala Lumpur di kawasan yang kerap berlaku banjir.

Program tersebut meliputi pembinaan kolam-kolam takungan banjir dan menaik taraf sistem perparitan induk sedia ada dan dijangka siap awal tahun 2010.

Projek tebatan banjir itu, ujar kenyataan itu, akan membantu mengurangkan risiko berlaku banjir di kawasan sekitarnya.

Smart Tunnel No Solution To Garbage - Unggah Embas
June 24, 2009 16:36 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, June 24 (Bernama) -- The function of the Stormwater Management And Road Tunnel (Smart) is to alleviate flood woes and traffic congestion, not solve garbage and pollution problems.

Natural Resources and Environment Minister Datuk Douglas Unggah Embas said: "We admit there exists a pollution and garbage problem, but the Smart tunnel was not built to resolve those issues."

He said this in reply to a supplementary question from Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim (PKR-Bandar Tun Razak) at the Dewan Rakyat here today.

Abdul Khalid, who is also Selangor menteri besar, earlier claimed that the Smart tunnel was not effective in helping the flood situation in Kuala Lumpur although RM2 billion was spent on the project.

In his supplementary question, he asked why the Klang River was not cleared of garbage and pollution to overcome flood problems.

Unggah Embas said, in an incident on March 22, last year, the Smart tunnel managed to divert 1.2 million metres of flood water from Sungai Klang.

He said, the tunnel was used to prevent floods from occurring in various parts of the city during heavy rain in the Sungai Klang and Sungai Ampang catchment areas.

The tunnel has also prevented flash floods from occuring around the Masjid Jamek LRT area, including Jalan Masjid India and Lebuh Pasar.

Unggah Embas said this also included Jalan Tun Perak, Kampung Baru, Jalan Tun Razak, Jalan P. Ramlee and around the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, Dataran Merdeka, Jalan Munsyi Abdullah and Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman.

He said, upon completion of the tunnel's Package B by year end, it would be able to control floods from Sungai Gombak and Sungai Batu, especially areas around the Putra World Trade Centre.

SMART Tunnel - is the public being served?
At Your Service
By DATUK ZOAL AZHA YUSOF


The mega flood-bypass project, which has won various awards, is a unique piece of engineering built to ensure Kuala Lumpur is flood-free.

The rapid pace of development in the last two decades has transformed Kuala Lumpur into a metropolitan city.

It has also stressed its drainage system, which has to cope with the ever-increasing flood discharges during major storms.

Consequently, the people of Kuala Lumpur have been riddled with increasing frequencies of flood occurrences since the mid-1990s.

Between 2000 and 2007, the city was hit by six major floods. Besides huge economic losses, the image of Kuala Lumpur as the up-and-rising modern capital city in Asia was somewhat affected.

There were torrents of complaints and anguish from the people, no doubt. The agencies were highly criticised for the planning, or lack of it.

The Department of Irrigation and Drainage (DID), which is under the Natural Resources and Environment Ministry, after some indepth research and study, put in place a comprehensive Kuala Lumpur Flood Mitigation Project (KLFMP) in 2003 to address the flood issue.

The KLFMP essentially comprised two projects, namely the Stormwater Management and Road Tunnel (SMART), which is a flood-bypass tunnel, and the Batu-Jinjang flood detention ponds.

These projects were supported by a few other subsidiary projects, all aimed at improving the flood-carrying capacity of Klang River tributaries.

The primary function of SMART is to mitigate floods at the heart of Kuala Lumpur. We had to identify the hotspots that caused the city to come to a halt, which are at and around the vicinity of the Masjid Jamek LRT stations as this is where the overflow of Klang River frequently occurs.

The other is at the Batu-Jinjang Ponds which would effectively handle the overflow at and around the Putra World Trade Centre areas due to over spilling of the Batu and Gombak rivers. The secondary function was to solve the much loathed problem of the city- the traffic congestions.

SMART provides an alternative route to ease traffic congestion between the Kuala Lumpur City Centre around the Kampung Pandan roundabout and the southern gateway at TUDM, Sungei Besi–Seremban Highway.

The construction cost of SMART was RM1.93bil. The Government’s cost amounted to RM1.31bil, while the remaining RM621mil was borne by the contractor, who has been given a 40-year concessionaire period to collect toll through SMART traffic operations, in lieu of the capital investment.

The working principle of SMART is simple. During a heavy downpour, the excess flood water at the confluence of the Ampang River and Klang River at Kampung Berembang will be diverted and detained in the holding pond.

This will then be channelled through the 9.7km tunnel before being discharging and store in the Taman Desa storage pond at the downstream end.

Subsequently, the flood water in the storage pond will be released back to the Klang River via the Kerayong River when the downpour subsides. SMART has a flood storage capacity of three million cubic meters.

There are four modes of SMART Operations. During modes one and two, traffic in the tunnel is not affected.

When the flood levels rise to a level where modes one and two are not able to cope, mode three operation will kick off and traffic in the tunnel will have to be evacuated.

Two hours after a heavy storm subsides, the tunnel can be re-opened to traffic.

However, should the heavy storm persists, then traffic tunnel compartments will be use to channel the excess flood water; this is called ‘mode four operation’.

When this mode kicks off, the tunnel can be used again only after proper de-watering, cleaning and inspection.

This often causes a four-day closure to the tunnel. The public is notified when this is done.

Since SMART began its operations in July 2007, it has handled a total of 79 storm events (50 events in mode two, 28 events in mode three and one event in mode four).

The tunnel has protected Kuala Lumpur from seven major storms. Two such instances were:

> March 22, 2008, when the SMART diverted 1.2 million cu m of flood water at Kampung Berembang away from Kuala Lumpur City Centre.

> March 3, when a major storm caused the water levels of Klang River at Masjid Jamek to rise to a very high levels of just 0.2m below the bank. During this critical storm, SMART diverted 700,000 cu m of flood water at Kampung Berembang. As a result, the Masjid Jamek area and its vicinity were spared from the flood impact.

SMART is truly a unique piece of engineering. As a result, it has won numerous awards, both locally and overseas, such as the Malaysian Construction Industry Excellence Award 2007, the Gold Award from The Association of Consulting Engineering Malaysia in 2008, the Engineering Excellence Awards 2008 from the Association of Consulting Engineers of United Kingdom and British Construction Industry (BCIA) 2008 Awards (International Category).

SMART was also screened by two prestigious television networks – the National Geographic Channel in 2007 and Discovery channel in 2006.

To date, more than 2,000 visitors, including local and foreign dignitaries, have visited SMART and left impressed by its unique functionality and success.

All awards are of no use if the engineering did not fulfil its role – and that role is to serve the people it is built for.

The SMART Tunnel was built to serve Kuala Lumpur, Malaysians and foreign visitors. It was built so that when you are in Kuala Lumpur, you will indeed be able to enjoy the beauty of this city flood-free.

Smart tunnel
http://www.nst.com.my/Current_News/n...6/article.html



Just 20 metres below the streets of Kuala Lumpur sits the world’s first stormwater tunnel with a built-in motorway.

The SMART tunnel which accommodates a stormwater channel and a double-level internal highway begins at Kampung Berembang lake near Sungai Klang at Ampang and ends at Taman Desa lake near Sungai Kerayong at Salak South The 9.7-kilometre long structure drilled through treacherous ground was a long awaited solution to the city’s flooding and traffic woes.

Located at the intersection of two major rivers, the Klang and the Gombak rivers, Kuala Lumpur is often besieged by floods, leaving a clean-up bill amounting to millions of ringgit, crippling the city’s economy for days.

The Malaysian government desperately needed a solution to what had become the biggest threat to the city’s survival.

Hence, when a plan that promised to tackle the flooding as well as the city’s worrying rise in traffic jams in one go was put forward, it was accepted with great enthusiasm.

Although the SMART concept is simple, it has a unique feature that protects the city against a worst-case scenario.

Besides the massive tunnel to safely funnel flood waters from the Sungai Klang at the north to the Sungai Kerayong in the south, there is a 3-kilometre long double-level toll roadway to help solve the city’s traffic problems.

Commuters travel on the road decks, while water flows below. If a giant river surge is headed towards the city, the two road decks can be evacuated and serve as additional flood channels to carry the raging waters and spare another flooding.

The work on the mega tunnel began in 2003 with the country’s heavyweights in engineering and construction sharing their impressive artillery of technology and knowledge to make this radical plan a reality.

To accommodate a stormwater channel and a double-level internal highway, the tunnel had to be more than 13 metres wide. And the fastest way to bore a hole that big was to use some of the largest tunnel boring machines.

Two giant drills each, 71 metres in length, were brought in from Germany to start the work. Each of the machines cost almost US$25 million (RM87.5 million).

The team hired veteran Hungarian tunneller Gus Klados as they lacked experience with the boring machines.

Klados has worked on some of the biggest underground projects in the world, including the Channel Tunnel linking Britain and France, but he found this project to be the most challenging.

For a start, most of the crew had no tunnelling experience. We had to recruit people from the region and train everyone on the job,” said Klados.

It was also not an easy task for Klados and his men, considering Kuala Lumpur’s tricky ground that is made up of karstic rock and soft material.

Its underground landscape covers cliffs, cavities, and fissures ranging in size from tiny cracks to colossal caves that could easily collapse Boring huge tunnels just metres below the city streets could cause a major catastrophe.

The challenge was enormous. The job required the tunnellers to work round the clock for nearly three years.

It pushed men and machines to the limit.

Watch how this mega structure takes shape and the many risky moments faced by the tunnellers on the National Geographic Channel’s SMART Tunnel (Astro channel 553) on Sept 14 at 9pm.

SMART Tunnel was funded by Finas and the Ministry of Information, Communications and Culture and is the second high-definition documentary production from National Geographic Channel’s “Malaysia to the World” partnership.

Jangan cepat panik
Oleh IZYAN LIYANA MOHD. DARIF 1 Disember 2009

Apabila kenderaan mengalami kerosakan seperti tayar pancit, kekeringan air mahupun enjin tidak berfungsi, terdapat beberapa perkara penting yang harus dilakukan.



JARUM jam menunjukkan pukul 12 malam. Skrin komputer yang memaparkan Pengesanan Insiden Automatik (AID) menerusi sistem Sistem Kawalan Pengawasan dan Pelaksanaan Data (SCADA) mula berkelip-kelip. Kelipan tersebut merupakan tanda amaran kepada para petugas di bilik kawalan trafik, Syarikat Mengurus Air Banjir & Terowong Sdn. Bhd. (SMART) bahawa satu insiden sedang berlaku di dalam terowong.

Tanpa melengahkan masa, para petugas terus meneliti 72 paparan skrin (barco wall) yang terpampang luas di dalam bilik itu bagi mengenal pasti lokasi insiden yang berlaku.

Daripada hasil pemerhatian, mereka mendapati terdapat sebuah kereta jenis Hyundai Sonata warna hitam sedang berhenti di laluan kecemasan. Dengan serta-merta, staf di bilik kawalan trafik mengeluarkan arahan kepada Pasukan Ronda SMART supaya segera memberi bantuan keselamatan kepada pemandu kereta tersebut.

Langkah tersebut penting supaya pemandu berkenaan tidak berasa cemas sekali gus dapat mengelakkan insiden lain yang tidak diingini berlaku di dalam terowong.

"Benar, kami perlu bertindak dalam tempoh lima minit sahaja. Sebaik sahaja menerima arahan daripada petugas di bilik kawalan trafik, kami (skuad peronda) mesti segera menemui pemandu yang mengalami masalah.

"Jika lambat...mungkin pemandu itu akan cemas dan panik. Lagi pun, segelintir pengguna SMART masih tidak mengetahui tindakan yang perlu mereka ambil apabila berlaku kecemasan yang melibatkan mereka di dalam terowong," kata seorang anggota skuad peronda SMART, Alzaahni Al- Malek, 32, kepada Kosmo!.



SEBANYAK 72 paparan skrin di dalam bilik kawalan
trafik SMART memantau pergerakan pemandu.


Menurutnya, apabila kenderaan mengalami kerosakan seperti tayar pancit, kekeringan air mahupun enjin tidak berfungsi, terdapat beberapa perkara penting yang harus dilakukan.

"Pemandu hanya perlu nyalakan lampu kecemasan, hubungi talian bantuan SMART dan tunggu di dalam kereta sehingga bantuan tiba.

"Jangan sesekali menunggu di luar kenderaan kerana ia boleh mengundang bahaya memandangkan laluan kecemasan hanya seluas dua meter sahaja," ujarnya yang hampir dua tahun telah berkhidmat dengan SMART.

Kata Alzaahni lagi, bagi pemandu yang tidak memiliki telefon bimbit, mereka disarankan keluar dari kenderaan dan cari pintu kecemasan yang terletak di setiap 250 meter di sepanjang terowong.

Menurutnya, di setiap pintu kecemasan tersebut, terdapat telefon kecemasan yang menghubungkan panggilan pemandu terus ke Pusat Kawalan SMART.



DALAM tempoh lima minit, skuad peronda SMART
tiba di lokasi untuk memberi bantuan.


Bercerita lanjut mengenai langkah-langkah menyelesaikan hal kecemasan atau kerosakan kenderaan, sebaik tiba di lokasi insiden, petugas skuad akan meletakkan kon amaran di belakang dan di hadapan kenderaan. Ia bertujuan memberi peringatan kepada pemandu lain supaya tidak memecut laju memandangkan di laluan kecemasan terdapat kenderaan rosak.

Kemudian skuad peronda cuba mengenal pasti punca masalah yang dialami pemandu. Sungguhpun begitu, segala kerosakan yang berlaku tidak dibaiki di dalam terowong. Sebaliknya, skuad peronda akan memaklumkan kepada bilik kawalan trafik supaya menghantar trak penunda kereta.

Terowong SMART menawarkan laluan alternatif yang lebih pantas untuk ke pusat bandar Kuala Lumpur dan menghala ke selatan.

Bagi memberi keselesaan kepada pengguna SMART, skuad peronda sentiasa membuat tinjauan sepanjang terowong. Sepanjang proses pemeriksaan itu, skuad peronda akan meneliti perkara-perkara yang boleh mengganggu kelancaran operasi trafik yang menjejaskan keselamatan pengguna.



MOHD. RASYDAN (kiri) dan Alzaahni sentiasa bersedia
membantu pemandu yang dalam kecemasan.

Cheaper ride into SMART tunnel on Feb 14
By BAVANI M Thursday February 11, 2010



All smiles: Mohd Fuad (centre) posing for
a group photo with the winners of the contest.


MOTORISTS using the SMART tunnel on Feb 14 can expect an ang pow coming their way. No it’s not the red packet kind — but a 10% discount on the RM2 toll charges from 12am to midnight.

SMART (Syarikat Mengurus Air Banjir & Terowong Sdn Bhd) general manager Mohd Fuad Kamal Ariffin said it was just a little festive goodwill gesture for city folks to enjoy during the Chinese New Year period.

Another good news is that SMART has also opened a new lane where motorists can reload their Touch ‘n Go and MyKad prepaid card. The selected SMART cash lanes will operate from 9.30am to 6.30pm.

“Motorists will not have to get out of their car and it can certainly speed up service and encourage more people to use the highway,’’ Mohd Fuad said.

Mohd Fuad said since the lane was opened a week ago the response has been good. “So far the usage of electronic cards on our highway is 62% and we are expecting more people will eventually switch to electronic cards,’’ he added.

He was speaking to reporters at the launching of the new reload lane at the SMART Sungei Besi toll plaza on Tuesday.

On the road usage, Mohd Fuad said the number of vehicles that use the highway is about 35,000 and that he is expecting the number to hit 39,000 by year end.

In conjunction with the launch, SMART also presented prizes to 20 winners of the ‘Get Spotted in the Tunnel’ contest held last year. Winners were selected based on their answers and the best slogan besides the SMART stickers spotted on their cars. Winners received three units of Touch ‘n Go cards valued at RM70 and souvenirs.

The SMART tunnel opened in May 2007 with the purpose of alleviating flood problem in the city and it has been closed 35 times for the diversion of flood waters since then.

Not so SMART motorway

Not so SMART motorway

KUALA LUMPUR: Several of the 43 emergency phones along the 9.7km-long SMART motorway tunnel are not working — but even more worrying is the revelation that at least five accidents take place there every month.

Stormwater Management and Road Tunnel (SMART) chief operating officer Mohd Fuad Kamal Ariffin told The Malay Mail that while the phones had been out of service for the past three months, the accidents were caused by speeding or drunk drivers.

The situation came to light following a burst tyre incident involving advertising executive Sue-Ann Frankie de Cruz, 26, who was stranded in the motorway for 40 minutes on Friday night.

She was unable to use an emergency phone near her stalled car to enlist the assistance of the SMART motorway control centre.

The helpline number 1-300- 887188 on a sticker stuck on the phone set was incomplete.

Sue-Ann managed to contact her father through her cell phone. Help came within 15 minutes after her father alerted traffic controllers.

Mohd Fuad said while several SOS phones in the tunnel had been out of service for the past three months, 220 CCTVs were used to monitor the motorway.

He said SMART was "facing a hard time" in getting the supplier from Australia to fix the phones.

"Due to their inattentiveness, we have decided to terminate their contract and are getting a local supplier," he said.

Fuad said the faulty phones should be rectified by end of the week.

In Sue-Ann's case, he said the location where her car stalled was at the exit of the tunnel that was beyond their CCTV coverage.

He apologised for the inconvenience and said it would not recur.

Sue-Ann, a regional senior account executive with an international advertising firm, was stuck at the end of the tunnel exiting towards Petaling Jaya and Subang Jaya, after her car blew a tyre.

“I stopped in front of the SOS phone to get help but the phone was faulty. To add to my frustration, the helpline number on a sticker stuck on the phone set was incomplete.

“I then contacted my father on my mobile phone and he had to contact the hotline number to inform them of my predicament.”

Although, the emergency response patrolman arrived within 15 minutes of her father’s call and helped her to change her tyre, Sue-Ann questioned SMART tunnel’s preparedness in relation to distress calls.

“I was in stranded in the tunnel for at least 40 minutes. How come the video surveillance cameras didn’t catch me in distress? Cars were speeding and I could have caused an accident or have been involved in one," she said.
