They are given the concession for 10 yrs in managing the smart tunnel. Their warm welcome and excellent briefing has indulged all the members. Everyone given the opportunity to watch video presentation and followed by sharing session – Tea Break.
The presentation and Q&A session covered the project planning, construction, smart tunnel concept, Engineering innovation and latest technologies in tunnel building. The talk was concluded with soft part of the operation (i.e. challenges and limitation) and public and government related issues.
Indeed all of us concluded that the Smart Tunnel is definitely an Engineering wonders made in Malaysia by Malaysian. The Engineering acumen complemented by Hunger for Innovation has astonished all of us. The Malaysian Capability in development far surpluses by what is always commented by public.
As a nutshell, the visit was very fulfilling and eye-opener to many of us in the field of tunnel construction.
