Property News/ 2 February 2012 Leave a comment

GEORGE TOWN: The second Penang bridge is 3% ahead of schedule and is expected to be ready by October next year, said Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.

He said the construction work was proceeding well.

“Although the bridge was expected to be ready in 2014, it is now expected to be completed earlier based on the progress of construction,” he said at a press conference here yesterday.

Lim said that according to completion schedule, the progress of construction was supposed to be 67.71% but it had reached 70.7%.

In October last year, Works Minister Datuk Seri Shaziman Abu Mansor had said the bridge was 65% completed and expected to be ready earlier than its November 2013 deadline.

He expressed confidence the project would be ready two months earlier than scheduled.

On another matter, Lim said the handing out of white ang pow during Perkasa’s Chinese New Year open house at Kampung Baru, Kuala Lumpur, was an insult to the Chinese community.
