This is an interesting idea. I have never heard of the Smart Tunnel or even Putrajya (I'm just an American guy living in Bangkok) but now thanks to your webpage and a few searches at Google, I have learned a lot. Thanks!

By the way, both projects are interesting from a Bangkok perspective. Flooding is an annual problem here too. Also, there has been some renewed talk of moving the capital out to one of the provences and building a planned-from-scratch new city. We'll see if Thailand can learn from Malaysia's successes and mistakes.

I was in Bangkok nine months ago and I was surprised to see so many elevated highways and yet the traffic jams donot changed very much. It is the same situation like in Kuala Lumpur.

IMHO, the numbers of cars and the drivers behaviors are the major factors that cause the traffic jams..
