Sectional handover of the 131.09-acre Gurney foreshore reclamation project has started this month with the first eight acres of land handed over to the Penang government on Oct 7.

The full handover is scheduled to be completed by mid-September next year (2020), barring any unforeseen circumstances.

In accordance to the Concession Agreement inked between the state and Tanjung Pinang Development Sdn Bhd (TPD), the company is to reclaim, at its own cost, and handover 131.09 acres of reclaimed land along the Gurney foreshore to the Penang government by December 2022.

TPD is a subsidiary of Eastern & Oriental Berhad.

The Penang government has earmarked a public realm called Gurney Wharf, within the 131.09 acres.

Some 15 delegates from the Penang government were briefed on the progress of the Gurney Foreshore reclamation project in Tanjung Tokong here.

The dignitaries, led by Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow, were being updated on the project at the Seri Tanjung Pinang sales gallery in Seri Tanjung Pinang today.

Fully equipped with personal protective equipment, the group was brought to the reclamation site via four-wheel drive vehicles.

The entire briefing and site visit took approximately two hours.

Among those present were Deputy Chief Minister II Prof Dr P. Ramasamy, state executive council members Jagdeep Singh Deo, Chong Eng, Yeoh Soon Hin, Datuk Abdul Halim Hussain, Soon Lip Chee and Phee Boon Poh, Pulau Tikus assemblyman Chris Lee, State Financial Officer Datuk Sarul Bahiyah Abu and Chief Minister Incorporated (CMI) deputy general manager S. Bharathi.

    Interesting … ‘Fully equipped with personal protective equipment, the group was brought to the reclamation site via four-wheel drive vehicles.’ Yes every photo shows none wearing masks, no social distancing, etc. Maybe the PPE was helmets to wear in the 4WD?
