Second Penang bridge project revived
Updated : 08-12-2005
Media : New Straits Times
Story By : Lydia Gomez


Plans to build the RM2.6 billion second Penang bridge have been revived with a proposal from a company which said it does not need soft loans from the Government.

Works Minister Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said he received a proposal recently from the company, which he declined to name.

"This is the first time a company is willing to finance the full cost of the bridge."

He said he will discuss the proposal with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi "soon".

The Government had put its plans for a second bridge on hold in April when the construction cost was found to be too high.

Instead, it had decided to widen the Penang bridge from four lanes to six with a two-metre road shoulder on each side.

Traffic on the bridge has reached critical levels, and Penang has barred slow- moving vehicles from the bridge at peak hours in the morning and evening.

An estimated 110,000 vehicles cross the island or back daily.

Another 15,000 vehicles are ferried to and from the mainland.

Samy Vellu also said Penang's other billion-ringgit road project, the Penang Outer Ring Road will be presented to the Cabinet for approval in the next two weeks.

The concession agreement will be signed after that and construction by Peninsular Metro Works Sdn Bhd is scheduled to start in January.

The RM1.02 billion ring road is expected to ease congestion from Tanjung Bungah to the Penang Bridge.

The 17km dual carriageway will have four toll plazas and eight interchanges.

U-turn in Prai to close for Penang Bridge expansion
Tuesday February 7, 2006


BUTTERWORTH: The U-turn to George Town near the Penang Bridge office in Prai will be permanently closed to traffic from tomorrow.

A PLUS spokesman said the closure was to facilitate the Penang Bridge expansion work.

“The upgrading work, which began in September last year, includes widening the toll plaza and bridge.

“It is expected to be completed by the end of 2008,” said the spokesman.

After the extension, a total 25 toll lanes would be available.

The spokesman said the U-turn back to Prai near the office would remain open to traffic.

“Those wishing to reload or buy Touch ’n Go cards at the Penang Bridge office can continue to do so but they will have to take the U-turn back to Prai and turn into the Bukit Mer- tajam exit. They can use Jalan Baru, Prai, to get back to the viaduct leading to the Penang Bridge,” the spokesman said.

On the temporary closure of the third lane on the Penang Bridge, the spokes-man said it was to facilitate maintenance work.

The stretch between Km4.3 to Km5.8 on the lane heading towards Penang island had been closed several days before Chinese New Year.

“We regret any inconvenience caused to bridge users,” the spokesman said.

He added that details of the proposed petrol stations near the toll plaza area were still being worked out.

Update on bridge works
Tuesday June 6, 2006
TheStar


PENANG: The second phase of the Penang Bridge expansion project involves the widening of the bridge.

Works are expected to begin in the middle of this month and expected to be completed in 16 months.

State Works, Public Ameni-ties and Transport Commit-tee chairman Datuk Koay Kar Huah said the first phase involving the widening of the toll plaza would be completed in September.

He said the third phase involving the construction of roads from Jalan Perusahaan leading to the bridge would start next year.

“The whole process will take up to 33 months and the whole expansion of the bridge is expected to be completed by September 2008,” he said.

He said the expansion would see a new lane on each side of the bridge comprising a 2m-wide lane for motorcycles and a 3.5m-wide lane for other vehicles.

Koay said that the placing of screens along the bridge's central divider had helped to reduce accidents.

“With the screens, busy-bodies no longer stop on the opposite lane to take a look at accidents.

“People can no longer see what’s happening on the other side,” he said.

Inisiatif pembiayaan swasta untuk jambatan kedua, monorel

Oleh HAIRULAZIM MAHMUD

BALIK PULAU 11 Jun - Pembinaan dua projek mega di negeri ini, Jambatan Kedua Pulau Pinang dan monorel menerusi Rancangan Malaysia Kesembilan (RMK-9) berkemungkinan akan menggunakan kaedah Inisiatif Pembiayaan Swasta (PFI).

Setiausaha Parlimen Kementerian Kewangan, Datuk Seri Dr. Hilmi Yahaya berkata, kaedah itu yang diguna untuk projek mega lain termasuk pusat pentadbiran Kerajaan Persekutuan di Putrajaya dilihat lebih menguntungkan dan tidak membebankan kerajaan.

“Di bawah PFI kita boleh guna program ‘build, list and transfer (BLT) seperti Putrajaya yang dibina oleh Petronas, tetapi apa-apa pun masih awal untuk diulas perkara ini,'' katanya kepada pemberita selepas melancarkan Majlis Gotong-Royong Pemimpin Bersama Rakyat dan Program Cintailah Sungai Kita di sini hari ini.

Jambatan Kedua Pulau Pinang sepanjang 24 kilometer yang akan menghubungkan Batu Kawan, Seberang Prai dan Batu Maung di sebelah pulau, dianggarkan bernilai RM2.7 bilion.

Empat syarikat termasuk dua dari luar negara membida bagi projek pembinaan jambatan kedua itu melibatkan dua syarikat tempatan iaitu Muhibbah Engineering Bhd. (Muhibbah), Arab Malaysia Bhd. (AMB) dan masing-masing satu syarikat dari China serta Korea.

Melalui

Projek monorel pula akan melalui kawasan-kawasan pelancongan utama di Batu Feringghi, kawasan perumahan Tanjung Tokong, Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah, Jelutong dan Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah di Gelugor, Bayan Baru sehingga Bayan Lepas yang menempatkan lapangan terbang.

Satu lagi jajaran ialah menghubungkan Pengkalan Weld-Paya Terubong di Ayer Itam dengan melalui pusat bandar di Komtar dan Jalan Datuk Keramat.

Sementara itu, Hilmi memberitahu, Kementerian Kewangan sedang mempertimbangkan permohonan kerajaan Pulau Pinang berkaitan pinjaman RM50 juta bagi membeli bas baru dalam usaha meningkatkan mutu pengangkutan awam di negeri ini.

“Kumpulan Wang Amanah Pengangkutan Awam dengan dana RM4.4 bilion hasil penjimatan subsidi minyak kini mempunyai RM100 juta dan kerajaan negeri ini adalah yang pertama memohonnya dan ia sedang dipertimbangkan,'' ujarnya.

UEM Group serah pelan dalam 3 bulan


UEM Group yang diberi tanggungjawab membina Jambatan Kedua Pulau Pinang akan mengemukakan pelan dan butiran terperinci projek itu kepada kerajaan dalam tempoh tiga bulan ini.




Pengarah Urusan dan Ketua Eksekutifnya, Datuk Ahmad Pardas Senin, berkata ini termasuk dari segi reka bentuk, kos serta sumber pembiayaan.

“Buat masa ini masih terlalu awal untuk kami mengemukakan butiran lengkap mengenai projek itu kerana ia masih diperincikan, termasuk kos sebenar yang akan terbabit,” katanya ketika diminta mengulas mengenai pembinaan jambatan itu yang bakal menjadi satu lagi pemacu kepada pembangunan ekonomi Pulau Pinang.

Beliau ditemui selepas majlis sesi dialog dengan Presiden Indonesia, Dr Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono anjuran Kelab Perniagaan Kuala Lumpur, di Kuala Lumpur, semalam.

Mengenai sama ada kumpulan itu akan turut mempelawa rakan kongsi asing untuk melaksanakan projek itu, beliau berkata, ia belum ditentukan.

“Kami ada banyak opsyen melaksanakannya,” katanya.

Ahmad Pardas bagaimanapun menegaskan, UEM Group adalah komited melaksanakan pembinaan jambatan yang akan menghubungkan Batu Maung dengan Batu Kawan itu dengan sebaik mungkin.

Kerajaan, Rabu lalu mengumumkan UEM Group diberi tanggungjawab melaksanakan pembinaan Jambatan Kedua di Pulau Pinang menerusi Inisiatif Pembiayaan Swasta (PFI).

Konsesi untuk membina, mengurus, mengendali dan menyelenggarakan projek jambatan kedua itu akan diberikan kepada kumpulan itu kerana ia adalah pemegang konsesi bagi jambatan sedia ada, selain mempunyai kepakaran dan pengalaman dalam pembinaan prasarana seumpamanya.

UEM: Detailed plan for 2nd Penang bridge in 3 months


August 5 2006

THE UEM Group will submit a detailed plan to the Government on the second Penang bridge in three months, its managing director said.

The details will include the development structure of the bridge and ways to fund the project, Datuk Ahmad Pardas Senin said.

The group was appointed by the Government to build, manage, operate and maintain the second Penang bridge on Wednesday.

The 24km second bridge, which will connect Batu Kawan in Seberang Prai to Batu Maung on the island, is estimated to cost RM2.8 billion. It is one of the mega projects under the Ninth Malaysia Plan.

Normally, firms would go for long-term financing for long-term projects and this means that UEM may sell bonds to raise funds.

UEM is also managing the existing Penang bridge.

Meanwhile, Ahmad Pardas said the firm is keen to participate in Indonesia's mega development projects, estimated to be worth some US$150 billion (RM552 billion), spread over the next five years.

The infrastructure projects include power, roads, telecommunications, harbours and ports.

"We have indicated that we would like to be there," he told reporters after the dialogue session with Indonesia's President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

New bridge, new hopes

By Marina Emmanuel and Audrey Dermawan
news@nstp.com.my


August 7 2006


SIXTY-year-old widow Hasnah Din has lived all her life in Batu Kawan on mainland Penang.

Her home in Kampung Masjid had no water or electricity until the 1990s, and going to school at Sekolah Kebangsaan Bukit Tambun entailed a 3km bicycle ride, after which she would hop on to a ferry to get to Bukit Tambun.

"It was a tug-boat type of ferry," recalled the former rubber plantation worker, "and our other transport option was the sampan.

"We hardly left the area, and I would consider myself lucky to visit Penang island twice a year."

The same scenario was echoed by 30-year-old Noor Hapizah Hussein, who also had to cycle and take the ferry to school decades later.

"My parents worked at the rubber estate and Batu Kawan at that time was flanked by rubber and oil palm trees, with a few houses scattered here and there, so it was quite scary to go out at night," said the cleaner who works for the Penang Development Corp's (PDC) property arm, PDC Properties, in Batu Kawan.

Do these somewhat "difficult" times experienced by some 60 households on this former rubber and oil palm plantation spell a childhood which was far from happy?

Quite the contrary, said Batu Kawan village security and development committee chairman Aziz Wan Chik.

"Sure, you can say that we were a marginalised village some five decades ago because we lacked basic infrastructure and amenities, but we survived," said the 48 year-old enforcement officer who is attached to the State Religious Department in Jawi.

"We got our first 'sepak takraw' court in the 1980s, but we were very contented as kampung kids who grew up playing 'guli' (marbles), hide and seek, 'gasing' (top) and flying kites."

Aziz said the 600-plus population in 2004 has nearly doubled today, as a result of housing projects which are mushrooming.

"Not one had heard of Batu Kawan until the stadium was built in 2000. Thanks to the announcement that Penang's second bridge will link Batu Maung and Batu Kawan, we now consider ourselves blessed since the potential for development in this area will surely be great," he added.

Batu Kawan is currently home to the stadium, which can seat 4,000 people and will also serve as the future site for the Penang Equestrian Centre.

Well before the site of the second bridge was confirmed by the Federal Government, the Penang State Government, via the PDC, had embarked on Batu Kawan's development in the 1980s by acquiring some 2,000ha comprising oil palm and rubber plantations.

Since then, the area has become home to a host of seafood eateries and its population is made up of fisherfolk, plantation workers and civil servants.

While Aziz and Noor Hapizah are excited about the construction of the new bridge, which they say will spell prosperity for the people of Batu Kawan and its surrounding areas, Hasnah is unfazed.

"I am an old lady," said the mother of two, "and there is a marked difference to life then and now.

"This bridge is not for me, but more for the younger generation who, I am sure, will see better times ahead."
