What Is It Like To Work On The MRT SSP Line

Senior engineers Madhu Shiv Patel and Chong Khin Yew are tasked with planning and managing the construction of MRT SSP Line stations. 

They are part of a highly experienced team of engineering professionals driving the infrastructure project towards a successful completion. Having gained valuable knowledge from their time working on the MRT SBK Line, they both are now putting good use of the experience into MRT SSP Line.

Their most crucial role has been the management and integration of civil and structural works with mechanical and electrical elements at the Kepong Baru Station site.

As the lead senior civil and structural engineer, Madhu has been tasked with constructing the foundations of the building. This includes the ground level, concourse level and platform level of the station, as well as the walls and separate rooms for systems operations.

It’s then over to Khin Yew to install all low voltage electrical services within station including power sockets, lighting, air conditioning, fire fighting systems, escalators and lifts.

Both engineers are required to work hand-in-hand with the various contractors to ensure that each of them are able to run their installations without any interference to other contractors, and that the station works are completed on time.

They also ensure works are in compliance with the approved design and all elements meet the necessary safety and quality standards set by the project.

We caught up with Madhu and Khin Yew to see what it’s like to be part of a nation building project like the MRT SSP Line.
