Muhyiddin sees no logic for Penang tunnel

Property News/ 18 November 2011 Leave a comment

KUALA LUMPUR: Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has questioned the logic behind the proposed third link between Penang island and the mainland, warning it may end up being a waste of funds.

“It is up to the Penang Government to decide on this project. But I must caution them against wastage.

“Such a mega-project would require a lot of money. What is the need for a tunnel, I don’t know.”

Muhyiddin said there was no evidence the second Penang bridge, which is halfway towards completion, would be inadequate to handle the increasing traffic between the island and the mainland.

“The second bridge is being built with the future in mind. Allow this project to be completed first. then look at the situation over time.

“If it solves the problem, why would they (the state government) need to spend so much?” he asked, responding to the announcement by Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng on the proposed third link that would be in the form of an undersea tunnel.

    Don’t talk so much la, nanti kena tangkap. You can see so many mega projects (including the recent opening one, with a lot of gold as raw material) in KL, all consume a lot of money, consume Penangites money too, all logic? No logic la, build the 100++ floor tower so called what merdeka bla bla, logic? At least, the Tunnel can be use by so many Rakyat, i think he forgot about Rakyat Didahulukan, Pencapaian Diutamakan. Mr. M, sent astronaut to space logic kah? No hope and hopeless. But we should appreciate what we have, at least we are better than like Afganistan a little bit.

    penang property price is getting higher and higher and no action have been taken by the government to curb this speculative situation, all developer only launch super condominium which can’t afford by working group in bayan lepas and in the end those can’t afford house here will leave the state and this is a drawback to this state. Those developer launching moderate price condominium do not have a good background and delay on the project. The island is more and more congested and more and more crime rate increasing. What can the we all do to change our country? Really No Eye See…

    Lim guan eng is busy helping developers to promote luxury properties only which is of no interest to the majority of the penangites. …. he should focus more on building affordable houses for the masses

    @Ken (Admin)
    Are you scare your website been close down for talking politic. I understand your concern LMAO ppl are all selfish… ROFL… Why nothing is been done for the high property price in penang and recently more and more super condominium is been develop. Is this what penang ppl want? Will those super condo help to boast penang economy. What are the politician thinking, what happen if all investor close down their plant in penang because not enough man power? In 10 more years will there any fresh grad able to live and stay in penang and how is the road condition, penang road nowdays is fully park with car and it is very dangerous for penang ppl, 10 more years i think the car will park till blocking the road. Why we want our fate been handed to few politician just to fill in their pocket and do not care about the citizen welfare? The situation is getting from bad to worse and maybe worst. What can we do?

    最近, 在网络上看了PHRA PIYATHAMMO和尚和马华公会鸱唛区主席叶金福(Yip Kum Fook, MCA Gombak)律师的双方信件, 使我的内心久久不能平伏, 良心受到很大的譴責, 不吐訢不痛快, 所以我要誠恳的説:他叶金福(Yip Kum Fook, MCA Gombak)侓师叫外来的流流氓到三宝寺(暹廟)挑衅和尚打架及电招警方人员扣捕沙彌, 其嘲笑手法, 不外是要显示其权力, 而鞏固其职位, 以达到权力就是一切, 好让住持难堪, 自动離开, 方便行事……这种举动, 已间接的表逹其含意, 住持和尚兼顾问, 都无能为力,你们这些信徒能做什么?即使告马耒西亜佛教总会又能为难什么?这种心态, 的硧令人反感, 不是一个正信佛教者应有的行为。

    至今, 三宝寺的理事成员多数是其親戚, 这是实事, 加入会员需交RM100元费用,同时,必须经过叶金福(Yip Kum Fook)律师的同意,否则免談, 所以会员也不多。

    马华公会鹅唛区主席叶金福(Yip Kum Fook, MCA Gombak)律师,自控制三宝寺之後,把三宝寺(暹廟)当着私人產業,聘用和尚賺钱,利用佛教的道地为政治活动埸所,而处理三宝寺的钱财也不透明?这点,值得信众追问。马来西亚地擴人多,和尚也不缺乏,为什么不用本地和尚当任住持化缘,却偏偏劳心劳神,浪费签证费,交通费? 还要烦劳梹城佛总的推荐信, 向文化不同, 而語言又不通之千哩外囯缅旬和尚求助? 为什么….为什么? 只要我们用头脑想一想,便一日了然, 不必晝虎添足。

    叶金福(Yip Kum Fook, MCA Gombak )律师说:欢迎任何人如有意见,可以电话03:62762369/0122039700 Email: YIPKUMFOOK@HOTMAIL.COM 戓到其马华公会鹅唛区会甲洞三宝寺及以下地圵:NO.2,B JALAN 53 TAMAN DESA JAYA KEPONG 52100 SELANGOR, MALAYSIA.討論, 我要老实的提醒大家, 最好不要一个去見他, 因为这个人狡滑, 笑裡藏刀, 很阴险, 出家人都不放在眼裡, 連TAMAN DAYA 52100 KEPONG, KUALA LUMPUR. 众人的印度廟也敢放火燒, 利用权势把场地佔为己有, 由此可见, 他是何等的心毒? 还有现在三宝寺内, 各处都按裝计孔监视来人一举一动。

    目前, 三宝寺很多信徒及当地居民, 已经对叶金福(Yip Kum Fook, MCA Gombak )律师不满, 但也不能做什么。他计划把三宝寺主席的职位轉给其子YIP JIUN HANN律师, 续承皇朝. 想近一部了觧詳情, 可上网得知。

    再说, 根据前理事在网络上给叶金福(Yip Kum Fook, MCA Gombak)律师的批評, 説他懂得包裝自己的道德守则, 以宗教为幌子手, 到处募款, 啇業经营, 政治活动为重, 并没依循佛教守則行事, 也没对人道作出貢献, 只不过借三宝寺宗教之名捞取权和私利而己, 其言也不为过, 是实事。

    在此, 我恳切希望, 廣大的佛教信仰者, 给予关注, 并共創義举, 弘扬佛教. 谢谢。

    Mr Lim Sok Chia敬啟

    LGE see that 2nd Bridge not really can solved the traffic jam of the 1st bridge. Building tunnel is very good move and in China there is a lot of undergroud lake tunnel . . .

    M is not good enough, can’t see the future of Penang. Penang island really needs a complete transportation future plan to resolve the issues which have been staying put since long time ago:
    road too narrow, no alternative route, and overcrowded at Island.
    LRT is required but can build beside the 2nd link to connect to entire Penang Island. Though it needs massive amount of money, mabe 100bil but, what can foreseen if it has successfully built, it will bring the smoothness of the traffic in Penang and pride of Penang.
    Not like KL, all the LRT stop over at ULU area and the urban management is really messy. foreigners came over KL also complaint its development and management.
