SMART tunnels should be closed in preparation for flood waters – KL-ites

SMART Tunnel Management has announced through its Twitter account that traffic has been completely closed for the preparation of flood water channels away from the city.

This means that it has entered mode 4, which ensures maximum flood water diversion capacity using road tunnels to store water, giving it an additional 0.25 km³ out of a total capacity of 3 km.

The weather forecast looks a little worrying today – a quick check on the weather app on our iOS device shows that it has been raining all day.

If you are in Kuala Lumpur today, you may want to take precautionary measures. The water level near Masjid Jamek area has been reported to rise very fast.

If your car is currently parked in an underground parking lot or somewhere that is usually flooded, it may be a good idea to move.

If you plan to go to KL but you still can’t get there, then postponing your plan might be a good idea – safer than sorry!

Update: The SMART tunnel has now been reopened for road traffic
