The MRT Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya (SSP) Line, also known as MRT2, is seeing steady progress as it heads for timely completion.

As part of the Klang Valley Mass Rapid Transit (KVMRT) network, the SSP Line is expected to serve a two million-catchment population, targeted for full operation by July 2022.

Currently being built by MMC Gamuda as the turnkey contractor, the SSP alignment spans a distance of 52.2km and 35 stations – of which 11 are underground stations covering 13.5km.

“Progress of the underground works for the SSP Line stands at 54.95% as at end May, with all 11 stations currently being constructed at variable depths between 20m and 40m below ground,” said Gamuda Engineering managing director Datuk Ubull Din Om.

“Despite the complexity of underground works in the highly volatile ground conditions of KL city centre, we have overcome these challenges by leveraging our experience and expertise. We will deliver the project on schedule.”

Ubull said 10 tunnel boring machines are now mining concurrently, with two more to be deployed by the third quarter of this year.

Prior to the MRT2 Line, MMC Gamuda constructed the 9.5km-long Stormwater Management and Road Tunnel (SMART) and the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang (SBK) Line.

Ground conditions in the KL city centre are a volatile mix of granite, karstic limestone and Kenny Hill formation. If not managed properly in planning and during construction, ground movements or sinkhole occurences could bring dire consequences to lives and properties.
