Pan Island Link 2 / 2A


Penang highway master plan also looked at enabling the future development of less­ developed areas such as Balik Pulau and Teluk Kumbar in Penang Island by constructing a “spurs” road from PIL 1 at strategic interchange location.

The other proposed Pan Island Links, namely PIL 2 and PIL 2A, to be constructed as dual two­ lane roads would:

  • Enhance accessibility and open up opportunities for future developments on the western (Balik Pulau) and southern (Teluk Kumbar) sides of Penang Island and help decentralise development pressure away from George Town;
  • Together with the southern section of PIL 1 form the Southern Ring Road for Penang Island;
  • Serve as major access roads for the reclaimed islands.

    Great. Looking forward to this. The west side of Penang Island (Teluk Kumbar, Gertak Sanggul, Balik Pulau, Pulau Betong, etc) seriously in need of more transportation/access roads improvements including more developments to keep up with the developments in town (eg.: Gurney, Tanjung Tokong, Georgetown, Weld Quay, etc).

    They should mention how much they will charge for the tolls, and what will be the mechanism behind the tolls.

    Penang Gov already mentioned it’s free… just they need to reclaim the island for this highway and LRT

    Oops sorry, I said wrongly…. Govt suggest two option, 1 is for user to pay toll, 2 is to reclaim land to pay off the debts. Since they insist on option 2, My thoughts is that the road will be toll free….
