Abstract

Managing environmental disaster requires the use of technology into how technology is used to minimize the casualties and loss incurred when disaster strikes. This paper involves the discussion on the evaluation and roles of tunnel technology in managing environmental disaster with a specific focus on the evaluation and roles tunnel play as the tool in flood prone areas. One particular example is SMART, an acronym for “Stormwater Management and Road Tunnel”. The SMART tunnel plays a very vital role in flood management as well as the traffic congestion in the city center of Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. The project is undertaken as a joint venture projects between the government and the private sector corporation and SMART tunnel receives so many accolades due to its unique feature and distinct roles in managing flood disaster in the Klang Valley.
