Hazards of the CLEM 7 Tunnel

Despite the advantages of the CLEM 7 tunnel, there are hazards that we need to watch out when using the tunnel.

  • Speed limit
    ensure that you drive within the speed limit
  • Breakdowns
    watch out for vehicles breaking down.
  • Air Pollution
    despite having vents and ventilation, during peak hours, the amount of particulates within the tunnel may increase. Turn on aircon in the recycled mode
  • Possible Explosion
    Failure of ventilation could increase combustible gases inside the tunnel leading to possible explosion
  • Flood
    The tunnel raised the flood level. Watch out for possible flooding
  • and many more...

It would be better to be aware than be complacent.
