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.

    Bayan Lepas LRT & Georgetown-Butterworth LRT should be build and completed concurrently as Phase 1 along with the 3 PIL road. Reason are mainland folks need to ride flight at Bayan Lepas and island folks need to ride ETS to KL.
    It will maximize the main bone of the ridership for all Penang folks convenient and fast Return On Investment ROI to the government.
    Not only that it will boost the tourism convenient from all state especially those travel from the North (Kedah, Perlis, Bangkok…etc) get in Penang Sentral to reach island for food heaven & heritage.
    In next 5 to 10 years we see mainland will be next driven economy to Penang so the monorail line Raja Uda-BM should be build under Phase 2 along with BRT & road upgrading.
    This is the best time to develop mainland while it is still got room to play and not fully pack with major integrated development like island where lot compensation/land acquire require costly to Penang government.

    Please speed it up as traffic is a nightmare . Penangite has been denied major infrastructure for so long especially when BN holds power in federal level . Since PH has took over and as a New Malaysia emerged, please make it a reality . LRT ( Bayan Lepas /GT line, The Light/ Butterworth line ) , sky cab and PIL .
