I would prefer a tunnel crossing like Hong Kong's, connecting Weld Quay to Butterworth. After all, isn't this the shortest distance between the island and the mainland? The ferries can then be used only for passenger traffic.

Penang Bridge to get additional lanes

PENANG: Plans are in the pipeline to expand the 13.5km Penang Bridge to create additional lanes for cars and motorcycles, Works Minister Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said.

The bridge would be widened to include two new lanes for cars and special lanes for motorcycles.

Concessionaire Penang Bridge Sdn Bhd was asked to propose a design, he said, adding that the company had already briefed the ministry.

Declining to comment whether the proposed second bridge would be postponed in view of the expansion plan, Samy Vellu said a special paper on the proposed expansion would be submitted to the Cabinet, “but it will take some time for the paper to be ready.''

He said this at a dinner held in conjunction with the Tamil Primary Schools Empowerment Seminar organised by the Tamil Schools Governors' Board at a hotel here last night.

To avoid obstructing traffic flow, the new lanes would be constructed separately along the existing bridge and be “stitched” to the main structure during the final stage of construction, he added.
