Malaysian Smart Tunnel wows the world
Malaysia’s attempt to bring innovation to solve an urbanization problem has been a resounding success and has even earned the nod of the United Nations.
Malaysia has been suffering from a worsening traffic problem and during the rainy season, flooding that could get quite disruptive. The solution to create Smart tunnels – transportation tunnels that helped alleviate traffic congestion in the city. But these tunnels also have a secondary function. When heavy rains hit, these tunnels are transformed into bypass tunnels for rainwater, effectively solving flooding. This is the kind of out-of-the-box thinking that we need to solve issues and obstacles, especially in business.
