Things You May Not Know About The MRT SSP Line

We are pleased to present the MRT SSP Line Progress Video for 2018. It covers the timeline between July 2017 and June 2018.

Once complete, the estimated travel time from Sungai Buloh to Putrajaya will be 88 minutes. It is expected to serve a catchment population of 2 million people. 

Here’s some fun facts about the MRT SSP Line:

  • 14,000 Segmental Box Girders (SBGs) are needed to cover the 37.8km elevated viaduct section.
  • The SBGs are made from reinforced concrete and are shaped into a cage using steel bars before being cast with concrete.
  • Each SBG has its own serial number and must be fitted in a particular way.
  • 13 SBGs are set at a distance of approximately 40 metres apart to form one viaduct span.
  • Building Information Modelling (BIM) is used to improve efficiency and to ensure real-time work flow. It allows us to build virtually first and then physically.
  • The MRT SSP Line was recognised at the Geospatial Excellence & Bentley System Awards 2017 for being the first infrastructure project in Asia to implement wide-scale BIM adoption. 
  • It is used during the planning, design and construction phase and helps avoid abortive works.

The MRT SSP Line is due for completion in 2022.
