How much does the SMART Tunnel cost again?

The SMART Tunnel finally opens to the public on the day before yesterday. The owner of the tunnel has granted the public with one month of free passage, a sort like try it session. After so many months thinking to myself, what is so special with the tunnel, and the hype caused by a documentary on it on the Discovery Channel, I finally used on the day before tomorrow, on the second day of operation. Emmy Rossum in the Day After Tomorrow is kinda cute, don’t you think so?

My opinion?

No, no, no. Not Emmy Rossum. The SMART Tunnel!

It looks boring from the inside. Yeah, yeah. The first of its kind they say. All that smart systems that are expected to mitigate flood problem in KL, blah, blah, blah. I can’t see them. So, boring…

After all, what would you expect from a tunnel constructed with a tunnel BORING machine? Have you ever thought of that?


The ride is not as smooth as the road above.

The ceiling looks low and I am sure those with claustrophobia would scream, momma, get me out please!

Not to forget, too long a tunnel. Feeling bored driving in a tunnel, a little voice in my head said, are we there yet? Are we there yet? ARE WE THERE YET?

What is the cost of the tunnel again?

But many it did not feel convenience allegedly offered by the tunnel because I did not have to suffer the insufferable traffic congestion in the morning. Later today, during rush hour, maybe I would come to appreciate Samy Vellu’s baby better.

Hah! Let’s see if the tunnel really helps in fighting flood! (Knock on wood)

Anyway, you might want to watch a video of a ride into and out of the tunnel, showing a terrorist inspecting the tunnel. OMG! Arrest him.
