Who ask you drive so fast? Like newspaper mentioned two guys crash into pillar of MRR2. Have to cut open the car to remove their bodies. Accident happened at 3.50am means traveling very fast..... smile_blackeye.gif

2 new highway with terrible riding surface:

- DUKE...like a roller coaster with sink holes
-SMART Tunnel...like a cheese grater.

why are these road surfaces so bad???



People pay toll yet so many potholes and yet they want to increase the toll price. Oh well, we have no control over the toll price increase etc. I ran into some potholes this morning at Guthrie near the NKVE / Federal highway split under flyover. Man it really sucks. DUKE is known for its uneven surfaces which creates aquaplane when it rains. SMART Tunnel, so far i dont have any problem.

SMART Tunnel

- The road surface is concrete, not tarred-road. Why ?
Answer: Concrete lasts longer than tar-road under heavy use. Less maintenance, although more expensive to lay it initially.
Also, if submerge under water, as smart-tunnel is used to divert rain/river water, tar-road will develop pot-holes very quickly. If you notice road areas where there is frequent water flowing/submerge, pimples potholes will come out very fast.

- Why is it very rough surface (cheese grater smile_tongue.gif ) and not squeaky smooth like Ikea parking ? Both also concrete what ?
Answer: You don't go 80-110km/h or more at Ikea parking. Also, Ikea parking is generally dry. The reason it is rough, is to allow water flow and aqua-planning, in addition to your tyres thread for aqua-planning.

DUKE - no idea on the sink-holes, very rare use that road.
