Synopsis of Lecture

The traffic congestion in Kuala Lumpur and the high demand of urban space would inevitably lead to an underground transit system. The underground works will inevitably be posed with all the constraints and challenges in both design and construction that is unique to Kuala Lumpur’s geology, land use and social-economic structure.

This lecture captures some of the salient aspects of the successfully completed underground section of the Sg. Buloh to Kajang (SBK), Klang Valley Mass Rapid Transit (KVMRT) Project. The underground works contract between Semantan and Maluri was awarded as a design and build contract to MMC Gamuda Joint Venture.

This lecture considers the engineering challenges related to deep excavation and tunnelling in the different geology encountered along the SBK line. The design of deep excavation, temporary retaining systems and other associated works for stations and its performance in Kenny Hill and Kuala Lumpur Limestone will be elaborated. The tunnelling works connecting all the underground stations will be briefly discussed including the innovative variable density tunnel boring machine. The risk management process, building damage assessment/protection and monitoring particularly to verify the performance of unconventional construction sequence will be briefly explained.

This lecture also make reference to the efforts made to develop the human resource to meet the tight construction program. The successful completion of the project is only possible with the dedication and commitment of the client, the management and the support of the many dedicated staff who had laboured tirelessly to complete the project on time and in a safe manner. The valiant effort and cooperation of various parties are gratefully acknowledged without which the subject matter of this lecture would not have been possible.  

NOTE: The written version will be co-authored by Dato’ Ir. Paul Ha and Ir. Dr. Ooi Lean Hock.
