KUALA LUMPUR, May 6 (Bernama) -- The Smart tunnel was reopened to

floodwaters, Syarikat Mengurus Air Banjir & Terowong Sdn Bhd (Smart) announced
in a statement.
The tunnel was closed to traffic at 2.40 pm on May 2 after its flood
drainage system was activated following heavy rain in the city so as to avert

during the period of the shutdown.
