TNB gets conceptual approval to build pylons on Penang Bridge

October 2nd, 2019 Leave a comment

The Penang government has given conceptual approval to Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) on its plan to build pylons next to Penang Bridge.

Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow said the plan was to cater to the power supply demands of the state.

“We are currently discussing with TNB after giving the conceptual approval,” he said at a press conference in Komtar today.

Chow, however, said TNB would have to obtain the planning approval from the two local councils – Penang Island City Council and Seberang Perai City Council.

Chow was asked by a reporter for his response following a report in a Chinese daily which stated that pylons as high as 100 metres would be built on the bridge.

On the Budget 2020 wish list for state government, Chow said he hoped that the state’s request for basic infrastructure, airport expansion and flood mitigation project would be taken into account.

The budget is scheduled to be tabled by Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng in Parliament on Oct 11.

    What you say may not be always true. It depends on how they build it.

    Example, an iconic well-designed bridge running over the sea normally ends up being a tourist attraction as compared to an undersea tunnel which is hidden from everyone’s view. It all boils down to how you do it.

    If its a must, pls consider build it with iconic design, an great example like Singapore MBS, power trees, its turns up a great tourist spot now.
    Secondly, location. do not build it somewhere cause the traffic issue from bad to worse.

    I’m ok with it as long as our cronies get the job to do it. We need the money to make sure Pakatan wins GE15.
