Penang CM: No approval on PSR yet

April 20th, 2019 4 comments


Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow has clarified that there is no approval yet for a plan to reclaim three man-made islands off the southern coast of Penang island.

He said the state government must follow the 18 points of advice set by the federal government.

“I did not say that the National Physical Planning Council has approved the project. What I sta­ted was that the council had agreed to its implementation, provided that we adhere to the 18 points of advice,” he told repor­ters here yesterday.

Chow said the confusion could have stemmed from media re­­ports which used the word “approved”, resulting in a statement by Federal Territories Minister Khalid Samad to deny that the council had approved the project.

The Penang South Reclamation (PSR) is a project to reclaim three islands: Island A (930ha), Island B (445ha) and Island C (323ha).

This land bank is expected to bring in more than RM70bil for the state, of which RM46bil will be used to fund the Penang Transport Master Plan.

Chow said besides securing approval for the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) report and a Traffic Impact Assessment report, other points of advice included the preparation for a Environment Management Plan report, Social Impact Assessment report, Road Safety Audit report and Fisheries Impact Assessment survey.

Other notable requirements, he said, were for a national disaster management plan to be put into place to reduce the development risk in event of a natural disaster such as a tsunami or increase in sea water levels, and a ban against the construction of condominiums priced above RM1mil.

He said the project delivery partner – SRS Consortium – would be working on fulfilling the advice points.

“All of us want the project to move ahead but it will take time and we are looking at least two years down the road before starting the physical implementation.

“It’s like in our DNA – that nothing will begin without all the approvals having been obtained.

“For the next stage, the state will have to look at the design and the financial architecture to implement this project.

“I can’t give a definite date when the project will start and any speculation that it will begin this year depends on how fast all approvals can be obtained,” he said.

On another matter, Penang MCA chairman Datuk Tan Teik Cheng said the oversight by the design team on Penang Island Link 1 (PIL 1) was a serious matter.

“If Penang Forum member Khoo Salma Nasution had not pointed out the flaws, it would have gone through,” he said.

It was earlier reported that Chow had said that the person submitting the EIA report for PIL 1 might have “overlooked” the matter as the Public Works Department had stipulated that the design for cut slopes should not exceed six berms.

A berm is a raised barrier meant to fortify and protect the slopes.

Federal Government approved Penang South Reclamation project

April 18th, 2019 4 comments 中文版


The National Physical Planning Council (NPPC) has approved the proposed Penang South Reclamation (PSR) project to create three islands off the southern coast of the main island.

Penang Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow, in a brief statement, confirmed that the NPPC had agreed to the implementation of the project as long as it adhered to the 18 conditions set, but did not elaborate what they were.

He stressed that the state government will adhere to all conditions set by the NPPC.

“We will adhere to all feedback from the relevant technical departments regarding the implementation of the project in line with Section 2A(2)(b) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1976,” he said.

The PSR is a reclamation project that plans to create islands covering 4,500 acres off the southern coast of the Penang island.

It is expected to increase the state’s land bank. Lots on the islands will be sold to raise money to fund the state’s ambitious RM46 billion Penang Transport Master Plan (PTMP).

Gamuda Bhd deputy group managing director Rashdan Yusof had revealed in February that PSR will create islands A, B and C off the coast.

Island A will be zoned as a new industrial park due to its proximity to the airport, while Island B will be specifically for high-end support services for the industrial park, such as financial services, business services and tourism.

Finally, Island C will be for the creation of new tourism products for Penang.

Gamuda Berhad is part of SRS Consortium, the project delivery partner for the PTMP.

SRS Consortium will be reclaiming the sea off the coast for PSR.

PSR is the funding module of the RM46 billion PTMP which will include a Light Rail Transit (LRT) and the building of Pan Island Link 1 (PIL1).

Just a few days ago, Chow announced that the Department of Environment (DOE) had approved the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) report for PIL1, paving the way for the project to be implemented soon.

Civil society groups including Penang Forum, Penang Consumers Association and fishermen’s groups have objected against both PSR and PIL1.

The last few days, the groups had issued statements criticising the approval for PIL1.

The groups cited reasons such as environmental damage and loss of livelihoods for the fishermen along the coast.

Air Itam link road to be completed by May 2020

April 18th, 2019 No comments 中文版


Traffic congestion in Jalan Air Itam and Jalan Thean Teik would ease when the RM3.7 million project to link Jalan Pisang Berangan and Jalan Thean Teik is completed by May next year.

Air Itam assemblyman Joseph Ng said the project, financed by Penang Island City Council (MBPP), commenced in March and was expected to be completed by May 2020.

“Without widening the roads and intersections or the provision of alternative routes, congestion problems will not only continue but it will also worsen.

“Jalan Ayer Itam, Jalan Thean Teik and Thean Teik highway have become the main connecting roads not only for Ayer Itam residents but also for Paya Terubong, Relau and Balik Pulau residents when heading to George Town.

“The road users here have to face terrible traffic jams every day.

“After the state Planning Committee had approved the suggestion of this project, MBPP then started the construction works to ease the traffic congestion here,” he told reporters when met at Taman Kejiranan Jalan Kampung Pisang in Air Itam on April 17.

Ng added that the appointed contractor is Shanor Intertrade Sdn Bhd.

“We are sorry for the inconvenience caused and hoped that the residents can bear with the construction works for the time being,” he added.

Meanwhile, resident engineer for the project, Johan Ishak, said a new road measuring between 60m and 80m would be built.

The scope of the project includes road widening, road realignment, tree transplantation, rebuilding drainages and opening a new road.
