The SMART Tunnel Video:
SMART is the acronym for Stormwater Management and Road Tunnel, a dual-function tunnel. It helps alleviate flooding in the city of Kuala Lumpur and function as a underground motorway tunnel when there is no severe storm. It serves as an alternative route for motorists heading to the KL-Seremban Highway when traveling southbound, and also as an underground bypass to the Bukit Bintang area and Jalan Tun Razak for northbound motorists.

One of the side effects of its split personality is that the motorway tunnel may close during severe storms. That's when it does double duty as a drainage channel. The tunnel usually remains close after the water has subsided for clean up operations. It also shuts down for periodic maintenance and inspection. There are actually three tunnels within a large underground tunnel. The primary one serves as a large water drainage pipe while the other two carry motor traffic in opposite directions.

On this southbound video, the camera begins recording just before the entrance of the tunnel on Jalan Tun Razak. The RHB HQ Building is on the left at the beginning of the video. The video ends after the toll exit on Jalan Sungai Besi, where you can drive to Seremban via the North-South Highway.
