Smart Tunnel's floodwater diversion to be fast-tracked following PM’s request

Following the Prime Minister’s point-blank-no-excuse-accepted meeting with parties concerned over the recent occurrence of flash floods in Kuala Lumpur, the Drainage and Irrigation Department (DID) has ordered the completion of the floodwater diversion component of the Stormwater Management and Road Tunnel (Smart) project one week ahead of schedule.

DID director-general Datuk Keizrul Abdullah said he had ordered the floodwater tunnel to be completed one week ahead of the scheduled date of June 30.

It was reported Monday the deluge on Sunday night that badly inundated many parts of the city within minutes could have been avoided had the Smart tunnel been ready.
