THE first tunnel drive for the MRT Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya (SSP) Line was successfully completed despite difficult geological conditions, marking a significant milestone in construction.

The 1.9km tunnel between Bandar Malaysia North MRT Station and Chan Sow Lin MRT Station which took 11 months, was excavated with the same Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) used for the first successful tunnel drive in the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line in January 2014.
