PENANG's SECOND LINK Update!

Second bridge ready by 2011
Wednesday September 6, 2006
TheStar


PENANG: Construction of the planned 22.5km second Penang bridge linking Batu Maung on the island and Batu Kawan on the mainland is expected to begin in early 2008.

Works Ministry road planning director Md Amir Kassim said it was due to be opened to traffic by early 2011.

“The bridge will span 15km across the Southern Channel, with a 1.5km 'directional ramp' at the Bayan Lepas coastal highway and 6km of 'approach road' at Batu Kawan.











“Each side of the bridge carriageway, where a speed limit of 80km/hr will be imposed, will be 14.4m wide,” he told Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi during a site inspection at Batu Maung here yesterday.

He added that a total of RM419.5mil would be used to upgrade roads in the vicinity of the second bridge on the island.

Earlier, the Prime Minister opened a new RM29.8mil bridge across Sungai Muda, which connects Penaga in Seberang Perai and Kota Kuala Muda in Kedah.

In his speech, Abdullah reminded contractors that delays in projects or problems that caused these projects to be abandoned would anger the people.

Commending the Public Works Department and contractor Lejadi Infra Sdn Bhd for completing the Sungai Muda Bridge ahead of schedule, Abdullah said:

“This is what I want from contractors. They must be fast. After finishing a contract, they can start working on another contract.”

Speaking at another function, the prime minister said contractors proposing infrastructure projects should think and plan creatively to reduce the cost to the Government.

He singled out the toll-free RM200mil Jelutong Expressway (JE) on the island as an example for other contractors to follow.

“I must thank IJM CEO (Datuk) Krishnan Tan for building a good road that did not incur cost to the Government nor any toll payment, but which has benefited the people,” he said when opening the expressway.

Abdullah said once the second Penang bridge was built, the expressway would become a major passage for the movement of goods to Penang ports and the international airport, thus bringing prosperity to Penang and the Northern Corridor.

Addressing an Umno gathering, Abdullah said after George Town, Jelutong, Tanjung Bungah and Batu Ferringhi, the wave of growth on the island would hit Balik Pulau.

“I want Balik Pulau to be the next area of growth in the northern region, with its proximity to Tanjung Penaga,” the prime minister said when opening the new Umno Tanjong premises in Lebuh Bishop here.

He advised Malay-based organisations and agencies to shed outdated approaches and change their ways to suit current needs and demands.

Second link groundbreaking ceremony at Batu Kawan
Saturday October 28, 2006
TheStar


PENANG: The groundbreaking ceremony of the RM2.6bil second Penang bridge will be held at Batu Kawan on the mainland, state Local Government, Traffic Management, Information and Community Relations Committee chairman Datuk Dr Teng Hock Nan said.

He said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi would perform the Nov 11 ceremony.

He said several mega projects here, including the 24km second bridge, monorail and Penang Outer Ring Road (PORR) which involved about RM12bil, would trigger a boom in the state’s construction industry in the next five years.

“Developers and and those involved in the construction industry can expect better times but they must strive to remain competitive.

“With prices of building materials increasing, there is a need for local contractors to cut labour cost by looking into innovative machinery as an alternative,” he said on Friday after launching the Penang Buildex 2006 Expo at the Penang International Sports Arena.

Also present were state Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Committee chairman Lau Chiek Tuan and Penang Chinese Chamber of Commerce (PCCC) president Datuk Khor Teng Tong.

Expo organising chairman Lim Hun Swee said the many development projects under the Ninth Malaysia Plan would rejuvenate the construction in-dustry.

Penang Buildex 2006 Expo which ends tomorrow is jointly organised by the state, the PCCC and the Penang Master Builders and Building Materials Dealers Association.

Land need for second bridge
Tuesday November 7, 2006
TheStar

PENANG: The design for the land segment of the second Penang bridge in Batu Kawan on the mainland has been completed.

Chief Minister Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon who said this yesterday added: “Only one-third of the land required for it is on private land.

“I do not think that many houses would be affected when the land is acquired.”

Dr Koh said that the bridge would run on a 6km strip of land in Batu Kawan.

He said the Penang Deve-lopment Corporation (PDC) owned two-thirds of the land, former oil palm estate land.

Dr Koh was speaking to reporters after attending a Deepavali and Hari Raya Aidilfitri open house at the Penang Development Cor-poration (PDC) premises here.

Dr Koh said that if the se-cond bridge were to be sited on the northern side of Pe-nang, more houses, located in the vicinity of Bagan Ajam and Bagan Jermal, would be affected.

“This is one of the reasons why we decided to locate the bridge in the southern part of the island.

“The other reason had to do with the objective of dispersing development to South Seberang Prai,” he said.

“Many vehicles coming from the mainland go to the southern part of the island where the airport is located.

“Thus it is more suitable to locate the second bridge at Batu Maung which is clo-ser to the airport,” he said.

Dr Koh said the design for the bridge on land had been completed.

“The design of the bridge for the sea segment will be completed soon.

“All the engineering de-tails and alignment have been finalised,” he said.

Dr Koh said that the bridge did not emphasise so much on aesthetics but on the fun-ctional aspects.

“However, there will be attractive rest stops on the bridge to beautify it,” he said.

Second link will halve load on Penang Bridge
Friday November 10, 2006
TheStar


PENANG: Traffic volume at the Penang Bridge will be reduced by half after the opening of the RM2.6bil second bridge.

Chief Minister Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon said the new bridge would provide a direct link to the airport and greatly ease congestion on the existing bridge.

“Currently, half of the traffic on the bridge heads towards the south of the island. Many trailers also head towards the Penang International Airport via the bridge,” he pointed out.

Dr Koh was speaking to newsmen after opening the RM11mil Multitest Electronic Systems (Penang) Sdn Bhd at the Bayan Lepas Industrial Park here yesterday.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi will perform the groundbreaking ceremony for the bridge construction on Sunday.

The 22.5km bridge, which connects Batu Maung on the island and Batu Kawan on the mainland, is expected to be ready in four years.

Dr Koh said the project as well as the monorail and the Penang Outer Ring Road (PORR) would help reduce traffic congestion on the island.

“We anticipate the monorail to be ready by the time the bridge is completed. We also hope that the PORR will be near completion at that time,” he said.

The state, he said, would also undertake measures to improve public transportation on the island within the next five years.

Dr Koh said the bridge project would see many labourers, engineers and subcontractors coming to the state, thus boosting the state’s economy.

“The economic spin-off will also benefit neighbouring states,” he added.

PM to launch work on bridge
10 Nov 2006
Marina Emmanuel
NewStraitTimes


GEORGE TOWN: Motorists will enjoy a smoother ride to and from Penang, once the RM2.6 billion second Penang bridge is completed in about four years.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi will perform the ground-breaking ceremony for the 24km link, from Batu Maung on the island to Batu Kawan on the mainland, this Sunday.

The existing 13.5km bridge, one of Asia’s longest, was built in 1985.

An estimated 110,000 vehicles use it a day, rising to 140,000 on weekends.

"Half the traffic on the bridge now is made up of containers heading to the airport... The new bridge will therefore take away a substantial amount of congestion," said Chief Minister Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon yesterday.

He added that the four-year construction period will also boost the state’s economy as engineers, construction companies and other experts enjoy the spin-offs.

The second Penang bridge project was approved and announced in 2003.

Speaking to reporters after opening the RM8 million Multitest Electronic Systems Sdn Bhd facility at the Bayan Lepas Free Industrial Zone, he said two other major projects would help reduce congestion on the island itself.

Describing the yet to be launched RM1.02 billion Penang Outer Ring Road and RM1.2 billion Penang monorail as projects with "parallel progress", Koh said the construction of the ring road would be nearing completion by the time the bridge is built.

"The state government will then go all out to encourage the use of public transport," he said.

Bridge a catalyst for growth
Monday November 13, 2006
By DAVID TAN and YENG AI CHUN
TheStar


NIBONG TEBAL: The RM3bil second Penang Bridge will serve as a catalyst for development at the northern corridor and also position the state as a northern hub for sea and air connections.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said the Penang International Airport and the Penang Port would be upgraded to support the second Penang Bridge as a gateway to the northern corridor so as to enhance and promote the economic growth of the neighbouring states.

“With the second bridge, activities at the Penang International Airport in Bayan Lepas and the Penang Port will increase manifold in terms of export and import business,” said Abdullah at the ground-breaking ceremony of the second bridge in Batu Kawan yesterday.

“There is no need to build more airports or ports. We will use what is already there, but it (current infrastructures) should be upgraded,” he said.

“Once the airport is upgraded, I believe it will have the ability and capacity to bring air cargo from the northern region to other places. And this can also be used to import goods to cater for the needs of the northern region.

“The port when upgraded will also help boost imports and exports of goods in the northern region,” he said.

Abdullah said compared to the Klang Valley and Kinta Valley, the development of the northern region had not been aggressive.

“This may be because of the importance placed on the agriculture sector. But now, we want this area to be developed because there are many agro-based SMEs (small and medium scale enterprises) based here.”

Abdullah added that the tourism industry here would also benefit from better infrastructure.

On another matter, Abdullah assured the people that the state’s ferry services would not be terminated.

He said a special allocation would be provided to upgrade the ferry services operated by Penang Port Sdn Bhd.

“I feel that the ferry is synonymous with Penang and is one of its main tourist attractions,” he said to reporters after the ground breaking ceremony.

Abdullah also said there must be no delays by the Penang Government in approving materials for building the bridge.

“If there are delays, we would lose a lot of money and incur more costs. The bridge must be completed in the allocated time and done properly,” he said.

On another matter, Abdullah hopes delegates to the 57th Umno General Assembly will focus their debates and discussions on the 9th Malaysia Plan (9MP) since it is the first of the three stages to achieving Vision 2020.

Speaking later at the Permatang Pauh Umno's open house held at the Seberang Jaya Expo site, Abdullah said the construction of the second bridge linking Batu Kawan on the mainland and Batu Maung on the island would generate over 2,000 job opportunities as well as provide sub-contract work for 200 local contractors.

Abdullah said the northern corridor was chosen for development because it had large tracts of land for agro-based and agriculture activities.

“There are also land near Permatang Pauh suitable for the biotechnology invest.

“I have asked Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon to bring biotechnology investments quickly into the area,” he said.

Abdullah said some 31,000 contracts had been given to small contractors in the class ‘F’ category following the implementation of the 9MP in June.

It took only months to implement project
Monday November 13, 2006
TheStar


BUKIT MERTAJAM: The conceptualisation and implementation of Penang's second bridge took only a few months after the project was approved.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Effendi Norwawi said a project of such magnitude would normally take years to get off the ground.

“However, the Prime Minister drove himself to ensure that the whole project was implemented as soon as possible.

“The speed of implementation is particularly impressive,” he said at the Permatang Pauh Umno Hari Raya open house at Seberang Jaya expo site.

Norwawi said the project would be implemented through the private finance initiative (PFI) which he described as “another innovation in Paklah’s administration”.

UEM hopes to ink 2nd Penang Bridge deal by mid-year
By Sharen Kaur
January 2 2007


Physical work at the site will continue in efforts to fast track the development of the bridge, says UEM director of business development

THE UEM Group hopes to sign the concession agreement for the Second Penang Bridge with the Government by the middle of this year.

UEM Group director of business development Mohd Azman Sulaiman said the detailed design is being developed, which will ultimately determine the final project cost.

"Physical work at the site will continue in efforts to fast track the development of the bridge," Mohd Azman told Business Times.

He said UEM is also evaluating various models of financing, which may include local and foreign investment funds, apart from the group's internally generated funds.

"The Government has entrusted us to build the bridge. One of the advantages we have is that we are already operating the first Penang bridge as the concession holder," he added.

Mohd Azman said UEM is looking at opportunities to synergise the first bridge with the second, while helping to derive as many other social economic spillover benefits that can be developed by putting the second bridge in place.

"The process of building the bridge will ensure that all stakeholders maximise benefits out of this initiative.

"We even want the local community to feel as if they are a part of the team delivering this bridge," he said.

UEM expects to maximise Malaysian input in the design and development of the second bridge with ambitions of at least 60 per cent of its value delivered by Malaysian entities, maximising Bumiputera participation, as part of the Government's national social economic agenda.

To ensure that the project is delivered on time so it could open to traffic by early 2011, UEM will fast track its development while implementing a suitable vendor development programme to have the right sub-contractors in place.

"UEM aims to have multiple levels of awards of sub-contractors who follow the vendor development programme. The whole idea is to develop a full supply chain which may then expand their potential to work together with us on our international projects.

"This is also a concerted effort to improve productivity and quality of the local construction industry and reduce reliance on foreign labour," said Mohd Azman.

"We are also strong supporters of the Government's initiative on adopting Industrialised Building Systems in the building and construction industry.

UEM was appointed by the Government to build, manage, operate and maintain the Second Penang Bridge. The 24km bridge will connect Batu Kawan in Seberang Prai to Batu Maung on the island and is one of the High Impact Projects being rolled out under the Ninth Malaysia Plan.

Why UEM picked for Penang’s second bridge
TheStar

UEM Bhd was picked as the main contractor for the second bridge project in Penang because it can carry out major projects with high technical expertise.

Deputy Works Minister Datuk Mohd Zin Mohamad said another reason was that UEM's subsidiary Penang Bridge Sdn Bhd (PBSB) holds the concessionaire for the present bridge.

PBSB was also the main contractor involved in the road-widening work at the present bridge, he told Lim Hock Seng (DAP – Bagan).

“A letter of intent had recently been issued and UEM is now preparing a detailed technical report for the Government.

“UEM is also responsible for the appointment of the main contractor, consultant engineer, mechanical and electrical consultants, sub-contractors and everyone involved in the second bridge project,” he added.

Asked by Lim the type of work that would be given to bumiputra contractors in the project, Mohd Zin said the Government encouraged UEM to use local contractors and experts in the project.
