On the 29th of June 2013, we went for a technical visit to the MRT Cochrance Underground Station Site as part of the National Summit events.
The technical visit started with a warm welcome and brief introduction of the project background, challenges, development and highlights by MMC-Gamuda KVMRT.

It's the time we've been waiting for, entering the site! We were accompanied by the MRT Site Safety Officer. It's compulsory to put on Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and we got even more excited. It felt as if we were the engineers of the MRT site for the day.

During the technical visit, the Project engineers explained about the current progress of work, the challenges they have encountered and solutions for the challenges to us. We even managed to get a glimpse of the assembly in progress of the Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM).

A technical visit wouldn't be complete without a group photo at the site! We looked so cool, right?
