    @Zulfikar Aziz

    Fully agreed. Penang is already over-development especially hillside housing dvelopmet with 39-50 storeys highrise. already out of control. why so many special permits granted by State Planning Committee ? typical AP scenario only in Malaysia ?

    150k people oppose PIL & Zenith highway. We better save Penang from destructive mega highways!
