Bukit Berapit Rail Tunnel is the longest rail tunnel in Malaysia. It is located in Bukit Berapit near Bukit Gantang, Perak, Malaysia. It was made as a part of Ipoh-Padang Besar Electrified Double Tracking Project. This twin tunnel, at 3300m, is the longest in South East Asia. In order to arrive at a projected service life of 100 years, among other things underground water must be prevented from entering a tunnel’s traffic area and the bearing structure must be protected from underground water.
