Penang Forum (PF) feels duty-bound to reply to Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng’s direct accusation that we are being emotional and that our statements on the Penang Transport Master Plan are not based on facts.
Penang Forum has launched a ‘Better Cheaper Faster Penang Transport Master Plan’ report and website (www.bettercheaperfaster.my) today, 13 July 2016.
The chief minister of Penang recently used the accident on the first Penang bridge to justify his proposed RM27bn transport masterplan. This is disingenuous; it is like arguing that more highways are needed because of traffic jams caused by accidents on the North-South highway.
The Penang Forum Steering Committee has responded to Prime Minister Najib Razak’s pledge to put in place a monorail system for Penang if it is returned to power in Penang.
