Penang George Town – Butterworth LRT Line
The 18km George Town-Butterworth LRT line will begin at The Light Station (on the Bayan Lepas LRT line) and terminates at Sg Nyiur Station for interchange transfer with Raja Uda-Bkt Mertajam Monorail line. Besides accommodating a panoramic sea view, the LRT line offers an efficient alternative connection – the fifth link – between key commercial and residential hubs on both ends of Penang Island and Mainland across the Malacca Straits.
Importantly, it fuses the rail network on both sides for passenger transfer between transit lines. It will be a vital connector and interchange with other rail networks in the state, such as the proposed monorail line from Raja Uda to Bkt Mertajam and BRT line from Permatang Tinggi to Batu Kawan. The proposed LRT line will enable passengers to travel from the Prai Industrial Estate, Penang Sentral and established housing estates in Seberang Perai towards Gelugor on Penang Island in a single journey.
