RM16mil road widening project to be completed by June



The long wait for the completion of a 1.3km-long road widening project between Federal Route One in Simpang Ampat and the traffic lights near the North-South Expressway’s (NSE) toll plaza at Batu Kawan, Penang, will be over soon.

Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said the Public Works Department (PWD) was confident of completing the RM16mil Federal Government project by June.

He said the project, which began in June 2008, was originally scheduled for completion by December 2010.

He said although the PWD later extended the completion date to September last year, it still could not meet the deadline.

“The PWD said the delay was not caused by the project contractor but by PLUS, which delayed in giving its consent for the contractor to build a 70m-long bridge over the NSE alignment there.

PLUS only gave the green light last December and so, JKR is now confident of completing the project by June,” he said after checking on the bridge’s construction on Thursday.

Also present was Penang JKR deputy director Mohd Hassan Harun and Bukit Tambun assemblyman Law Choo Kiang.

Lim said many residents had complained of bottle necks, especially near the mini roundabout outside the NSE’s Bukit Tambun toll plaza due to the project’s delay.

He said the project involved widening the two-lane stretch to four lanes.

again, federal is the main obstacle to slow down the developement.

Batu Kawan to rival Bayan Lepas
February 17th, 2012
www.penangpropertytalk.com






BUTTERWORTH: Batu Kawan, once a rural swampland of oil palm estates, is set to become the next Bayan Lepas, Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said.

He said three major investments from Robert Bosch, Boon Siew Honda and VAT Manufacturing Malaysia totalling about RM10bil in Batu Kawan would have spillover effects on different sectors, including thousands of jobs for those living in the area.

“At the same time, Batu Kawan will also have the country’s first integrated, streamlined and symmetrically designed affordable housing scheme.

“We have engaged the world’s best in this field, Surbana International Consultants — the privatised building and development division of Singapore’s Housing and Development Board (HDB),” he said before performing the ground breaking for the RM2.7bil Bandar Cassia Affordable Housing Scheme yesterday.

On the state’s choice of the consultancy firm, Lim said the state’s investment arm Penang Development Corporation (PDC) did not want to copy or model its affordable houses after some of the world’s best designs but to appoint the best in the industry to help with the planning.

Lim reiterated that the housing project, which would be given out to local contractors via an open tender, would be ideal for the middle-income earners.

“We do not want our middle-income earners to live in boxes. That is why proper planning is vital so that they can live with pride and enjoy quality living through this scheme.

“This eco-friendly designed project, on an 80ha plot of land, will have about 12,000 medium-cost housing units, three football fields, a man-made river and recreation parks,” he said.

Lim said the freehold units, ranging from 800sq ft to 1,000sq ft, would be housed in high-rise buildings of between nine and 16 storeys. The units are priced at between RM72,500 and RM220,000 each with a free car parking lot.

He said Surbana was committed to oversee the project’s progress throughout the scheduled 10-year development period over five phases with the Phase 1 expected to be ready by 2014.

“The state government will undertake the maintenance and management of these housing units once completed.”

He said the various projects would ‘create’ a population of about 250,000 residents.

This affordable housing project in Batu Kawan is indeed impressive. Nowadays it may not make sense to try build low-medium cost in the Island due to the scarsity of land, which push the price to the sky. Even if there is, the life-style and quality will come to compromise - just look at the LC/LMC developments around sg pinang and mnt erskine and you know what i meant. However to try it in mainland such as batu Kawan may be strategic and timely, huge and more affordable landbank allows the building of houses with better quality and lifestyles features (parks, ponds, sports facilties etc) especially when coupled with good planning and infrastructure upgrading. Science park is hot on wheel, and once 2nd bridge is completed in sep'2013 as its claimed, this area will then be self sustained and connected well with the island.
