Your monitoring infrastructure is as mission-critical as the equipment it is watching over.
History[ edit ] The severed causeway on the eve of Japanese invasion in These materials were trans-shipped across the Johor Straits by ferry. The early s saw a rise in cross-straits traffic of both goods and passengers, and the ferry system grew increasingly congested. Bythe demand for the ferries was so high that they had to be operated around the clock.
The volume of traffic and the high maintenance costs of the ferries led the colonial authorities to search for an alternative system.
The proposed Causeway would be 1. It would also include a lock channel that allowed the passage of small vessels, an electric lift-bridgewater pipelines and floodgates to manage the water flow of the straits. Construction began in August, with the project considered technically challenging for its time.
The Causeway was also the largest engineering venture in Malaya then. Construction started at the Johor end of the straits, where the lock channel was to be located, in order to minimise disruption to existing ferry services.
The quarry on Pulau Ubin was reopened to supply rubble and crushed stone, and the granite supply was later boosted by stone from the Bukit Timah quarry. Sir Laurence Nunns Guillemardthe governor of the SS, conducted the ceremony from aboard the yacht Sea Belle, anchored in the middle of the straits.
The occasion also involved the Sultan of JohorIbrahim IIand the mufti of Johor, who poured ceremonial waters air doa selamat, air tolak bala and air mawar into the straits. The ceremony was ended by the emptying of the first two loads of rubble some tons of granite into the straits. During an economic depression between andpublic criticism of the project and its costs nearly led the FMS and SS governments to halt construction.
Work on the lift bridge began in August and the lock channel was completed in December. From Januaryall shipping on the straits was diverted through the lock channel.
The straits were sealed up by June and the Causeway was opened to goods trains from 17 September. The goods ferry service, which by that time was running around 11, trips annually, and the passenger ferry service were ended.
On 1 October, the Causeway was opened for public use and the first passenger train across it arrived at the Tank Road station in Singapore at 7. A Causeway toll, which ran up to 40 cents for first class carriage passengers and replaced the ferry fee, was introduced.
During the ceremony, the Malay rulers and British officials were the first to be driven across the Causeway in a convoy of 11 motorcars, after which the roadway was opened for public use.
A year later, the Johor Causeway Control Committee was formed to oversee the management and maintenance of the Causeway. The pipelines carrying water to Singapore were also severed.
The Japanese subsequently constructed a girder bridge over the gap before taking control of Singapore. After the return of the British, the Japanese-made girder bridge was replaced with two Bailey bridge extensions in Februarywith the rubble of the demolished lift bridge cleared and the railway tracks re-laid.
The lock channel and lift bridge were permanently closed as there was insufficient vessel traffic to justify its cost. During the Malayan Emergency ofa system of identity card checks was instituted for Causeway travellers.In this lesson, we'll learn about project milestones, including what they are and how they're used to measure a project's progress.

How Do I Differentiate Through Project-Based Learning? by John McCarthy, TeachThought PD Project-Based Learning and Differentiation Workshop Facilitator “How do I differentiate through PBL?” Teachers often ask this question as they see the possibilities of planning and implementing project-based learning units (PBL).
A - Project Management Terms. Accept - A decision to take no action against a threat. Project teams typically accept risks when they fall below risk thresholds or when the team thinks it best to act only if and when a threat occurs.
