All ready to create waves

Work in progress: Lowering of the middle shield of the Variable Density Tunnel Boring Machine in Bandar Malaysia North.

Completed and open to the public within budget and schedule in July 2017, the Sungai Buloh-Kajang MRT line was built with the help of 10 tunnel boring machines (TBM), eight of them the world’s most sophisticated of their kind.

According to Datuk Ubull Din Om, managing director of Gamuda Engineering Sdn Bhd, the partnership between MMC Corporation Bhd and Gamuda Bhd – MMC Gamuda KVMRT (T) Sdn Bhd (or MGKT) – clinched the bid for the underground portion of the SBK line on account of its competitive pricing and technical prowess, especially after completing the 9.5km-long Stormwater Management and Traffic Tunnel (SMART) in Kuala Lumpur in 2007.
