Not so smart after all


Presenting the SMART Tunnel.

Malaysia's pride and glory.
A total of RM1,887 million spent to show the world the engineering edge that Bolehland has.
After years of construction, it was finally opened on 14 May 2007.
The tunnel is claimed the longest stormwater tunnel in South East Asia and second longest in Asia.
Barely a few months into function, the tunnel had to be shut down due to various "technical problems".
And new, barely a year into function, they don't even know how well or how long does it take to irrigate water.
Check it out here.
There we are, ladies and gentlemen, Malaysia's very own SMART Tunnel designed to alleviate traffic jams and to enhance the irrigation systems.
The Tunnel does everything EXCEPT alleviate and irrigate water.
Talk about irony.

    Give them a break la deng. It's Malaysian made after all. Unless we change the mentality of how local made products sucks, we may never improve.

    Let them correct the problems
