  • Discovery Channel Man Made Marvels Kuala Lumpur Flood Control 3/4

    Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia's Capital, is under siege from flash floods, powerful forces of nature that bring the city to its knees. The source: severe thunderstorms that pound the city for months on end. But Kuala Lumpur is fighting back. A daring construction project will try to bring the mighty floods under control. Massive floodgates across three rivers; six kilometres of canals; giant storage ponds and a state of the art storm water tunnel that doubles as an underground highway. It's a combination that has never been attempted before. If they can pull it off, Kuala Lumpur's flood control system will truly be a man made marvel.

    Appreciate the flood prevention, but that dual use is a knucklehead idea. Courting disaster.

    Jokes aside, I wonder how they avoid cave in’s from around the tunnel due to erosion!? Sure they have the grout, but water is a major force to the max!

    So...everytime the flood water flows through the entire tunnel, they must clean the silt out of the roadway?

    This tunnel boring thing is nothing new , using a slurry is nothing new, pressure in front of the boring head is nothing new, they’ve been doing this for years it’s all for dramatic affect. Even using corrugated piling steel , it’s not new we’ve been using it for years that’s nothing new hello there’s nothing new here nothing new at all. This mole guy hasn’t invented anything new. This guy needs to go sit down. They’ve Ben doing this stuff for years. Alllllllll for a dramatic affect.
