  First phase of PTMP will be continued after all requirements met  
 
 

Friday, 09 November 2018

GEORGE TOWN, Nov 9 (Bernama) -- The Penang government will continue with the projects in the first phase of the Penang Transport Master Plan (PTMP), the State Assembly sitting was told today.

However, chairman of the state Housing, Local Government, Town and Rural Development Committee Jagdeep Singh Deo said the state government would ensure that all the required studies, including the Social Impact Assessment (SIA), have been conducted before the projects are implemented.

“The Social Impact Assessment for the PTMP will include details of the current problems, and will also propose measures which could be taken to mitigate these problems.

“The state government is committed, we will look at the SIA. We will take steps to mitigate any social impact. So we will continue with the project,” he said at the question-and-answer session at the Penang State Assembly here today.

Jagdeep Singh was replying to a question from Muhamad Yusoff Mohd Noor (BN-Sungai Dua) who asked if the projects under the first phase of the PTMP would be continued if there was social impact on the affected areas such as schools and cemeteries.

The proposed projects in the first phase of the PTMP include the Pan Island Link 1 (PIL1) highway, the Bayan Lepas light rail transit system (LRT) as well as projects which include several major roads.

The PTMP, a project started by the state government with an estimated cost of RM46 billion, includes an undersea tunnel between the island and mainland, highways, LRT, monorail, as well as an extensive bus service on the island and mainland.

Earlier, replying to a question from Ong Khan Lee (PH-Kebun Bunga) who wanted to know if the state government would abide by the Town and Country Planning Act  1976 which requires an SIA to be conducted for infrastructural projects like the PTMP, Jagdeep said the state government would abide by all laws.

“For the first phase of the PTMP, the SIA has already been conducted and submitted to the relevant technical departments for approval. The state government will give the highest commitment to implement all mitigation measures to ensure the PTMP is conducted smoothly,” he said.
