Penang finalizes Mutiara LRT alignments, construction to start soon


The Penang state government has selected the best alignment for the Penang Mutiara Line Light Rail Transit (LRT) project, as proposed by Mass Rapid Transit Corp Sdn Bhd (MRT Corp). This decision was confirmed by Penang Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow during a press conference at his office in Komtar. The state government sent a confirmation letter to the Transport Ministry two weeks ago, solidifying their agreement with the proposed alignment.

Chief Minister Chow stated that the chosen alignment aligns closely with their original plan, albeit with some modifications. Notably, the original LRT line did not include an extension to Penang Sentral in Butterworth. The new alignment begins at Silicon Island and connects Penang Sentral to the Macallum area in George Town, enhancing future connectivity to other lines.

MRT Corp has since discarded other proposed alignments, focusing solely on this selected route. With all critical decisions made, the project is now in the open tender phase. Construction is set to commence once the tender process is finalized.

The Transport Ministry officially assumed control of the Penang LRT project following Cabinet approval on March 22. SRS Consortium Sdn Bhd has been appointed to build the first segment of the project, with construction anticipated to begin in September.

In a recent Facebook post, the Penang Chief Minister announced a fruitful discussion with Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Seri Amir Hamzah Azizan. The meeting focused on several critical infrastructure projects previously proposed to the Federal Government, including the Perak-Penang Water Project, the expansion of the North-South Expressway (from Juru Toll to Sungai Dua Toll), and the return of 20% of collected taxes.

A key highlight was the proposal for a matching grant initiative to support the establishment of an integrated circuit (IC) design park and a chip design academy in Penang. Datuk Seri Amir Hamzah Azizan expressed keen interest in these innovative projects, recognizing their potential to elevate the local industry to compete with major global corporations. The involvement of government-linked investment companies (GLICs) was also identified as crucial for the sector’s development.

Additionally, the Penang State Government presented the ‘Penang STEM Talent Blueprint,’ designed to meet the human capital needs of various industries while also benefiting family welfare. Further discussions with the ministry will focus on implementing this blueprint to ensure it aligns with industry demands and supports the local workforce.

Seberang Perai City Council (MBSP) will organise a ‘Program Mesra Pelanggan’ (Meet the Customer Day) on June 30 (Sunday) at Taman Ara Jaya community hall in Ara Kuda, Tasek Gelugor.

MBSP mayor Datuk Azhar Arshad said the programme will focus on house owners in Ara Kuda, Tasek Gelugor, Kubang Menerong, Bertam dan nearby areas.

He mentioned that the programme will serve as a platform for these house owners to apply for approval from the city council if they want to conduct any renovation works on their houses.

“Those who just obtained the Certificate of Completion and Compliance (CCC) for new houses are also encouraged to apply.

“The city council urges all parties with residential homes to obtain approval for any renovation works they plan to carry out.

“Those who carry out renovation works without permission risk facing enforcement action from MBSP.

“This is important to ensure that all renovation works are carried out properly and legally to avoid any issues,” Azhar told reporters after the full council meeting at the MBSP headquarters building in Bandar Perda, Bukit Mertajam today.

Azhar added that the approval for the renovation works will be granted on the same day if the applications meet all the criteria and conditions set by MBSP.

For further inquiries, the public can call the MBSP Building Department at 04-5497737 / 04-5497776.

On a separate matter, Azhar announced that ratepayers in Seberang Perai could stand a chance to win cash prizes totalling RM19,655 when they pay their second assessment tax for the year 2024 and arrears online, through appointed collection agencies or at kiosks.

“All premises owners on the mainland would be entitled to the lucky draw if they settle their payment from July 1 to Aug 31.

“The 10 cash prizes are RM5,555 (first place), RM4,000 (second place), RM3,000 (third place), RM2,000 (fourth place), RM1,000 (fifth place), RM700 (sixth place), RM500 (seventh place), RM400 (eighth place), RM300 (ninth place) and RM200 for the 10th place.

“From the 11th place until the 30th place, the price is RM100 each.

“Those who pay their assessment at the physical counter are automatically opted out of the draw.

“Thus, I would like to urge all premises’ owners to make payments and settle their arrears within the stipulated time to stand a chance of winning the lucky draw prizes,” he added.
