Smart Tunnel reminds that motorcycles aren’t allowed in, no insurance coverage if an accident happens

The Stormwater Management and Road Tunnel, better known as the Smart Tunnel, is one of the stretches in the Klang Valley that motorcycles and heavy vehicles aren’t allowed access, and this has been the case in the 15 years the route has been in operation.

Recorded public notice that motorbikes are prohibited from using the tunnel go all the way back to 2008, and reminders continue today in the form of signage mounted at the various ingresses going into the four km-long, double-deck motorway.

Of course, that hasn’t stopped bikers from using the tunnel, with enough videos and posts on social media highlighting this illegal activity over the years, despite repeated calls for motorcyclists to stop doing so. The reason for denying its use to two-wheeled vehicles is simple – the tunnel is narrow, and the potential for mishaps are high.

Earlier today, its operator, Smart, once again issued a warning to motorcyclists that two-wheeled vehicles are not allowed access to the tunnel. In a tweet, Smart added the point that motorcyclists and pillion riders are not covered by insurance should they be involved in an accident inside the tunnel.

On its website, the company states that the only vehicles allowed to use the Smart Tunnel are passenger cars, MPVs and SUVs, the height of which does not exceed two metres. There are three entry/exit routes for the Smart Tunnel, namely at Sungai Besi, next to RMAF airport in Jalan Tun Razak, at the Kg Pandan roundabout, next to RHB Bank in Jalan Sultan Ismail and at the Park Royal Hotel traffic light, next to Berjaya Times Square.

        Yes, motorcyclist got insurance and yes, can claim from them as I had my motorcycle insurance claim against a car before as I crash into the car.

        However, most motorcyclist (bad eggs) do not purchase or might not even have a license which cause more problem

  • Most motorcyclist is the same like most smokers. Selfish, arrogant, hazard to others and themselves. Not all but mostly are.

    Will the motorcyclists listen to the restriction? Nahhh they won’t. They are stubborn creatures who fail to read signs everywhere because they think they are so entitled.

    Mat rempit won’t care one lah. As long as there is no enforcement, all these mat moto will break the law.

    nothing will stop these rempit from using the SMART tunnel as long as PDRM continues to tidur.

    Everyday, you can see mat moto beat the red light, sometimes even in front of Polis, yet they do nothing

    Motorcycles are banned on LDP flyovers as well, but motorcycles are oblivious to it and surprisingly not many know about it either

      They are not banned. It’s just suggesting using intersection. Which is wasting time.

        Actually I wanted to know the real reason. Most motor can go as fast as the cars under speed limit. It’s no longer the era of 70cc kapcai where going up the flyover will cause them to slow down, so why waste time?
