SMART Tunnel, Kuala Lumpur

3.1
Drive through SMART Tunnel, between Kampung Berembang Lake and Taman Desa Lake, to experience and see a feat of engineering and one of the country's major national communications projects. Winner of the 2011 UN Habitat Scroll of Honour Award for its innovative management of storm water and peak hour traffic, the two-tiered tunnel channels floodwater beneath the road, alleviating the danger and inconvenience posed by flash floods in the city, while also freeing up traffic from the heavily congested city center by channeling it onto the 9.7 km (6 mi) urban underground motorway.
