Road projects in Bukit Tambun set to ease traffic congestion


Several small-scale road projects in Bukit Tambun are scheduled for completion in November this year.

Caretaker Penang Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow said the RM2.4 million road projects are the latest projects approved by the Economy Ministry recently.

“The projects primarily involve road widening works in Jalan Bukit Tambun and road upgrading works near Bukit Tambun Selatan Toll Plaza.

“The road improvements include road lines repainting along the Jalan Bukit Tambun, Jalan Pathau, Jalan Paboi, Jalan Ipoh-Butterworth, Jalan Transkrian-Bukit Panchor and Jalan Transkrin. Other complementary works will also be undertaken.

“All of these projects are expected to start in August after the state Public Works Department (JKR) has appointed the contractor for these projects.

“Once completed, these projects are expected to ease the traffic congestion in the areas,” Chow told reporters during his working visit near Bukit Tambun Selatan Toll Plaza in Bukit Tambun today.

Also present were caretaker state Tourism and Creative Economy Committee chairman Yeoh Soon Hin and former Bukit Tambun assemblyman Goh Choon Aik.

On another working visit at Bandar Tasek Mutiara in Bukit Tambun, Chow announced that the state government is in the process of acquiring a piece of land between Jalan Tasek Mutiara 10 and Jalan Hijauan Hills 1.

He explained that the acquisition is to build a bypass to connect Jalan Tasek Mutiara 10 and Jalan Hijauan Hills 1.

“This is important to enhance accessibility to the schools in the neighbourhood.

“Previously, parents staying in the neighbourhood have complained that they have to use a longer route via the main road to reach the school, which takes around 30 minutes despite the schools being less than 1km away.

“So, once the land takeover has been completed, JKR will then start the construction work to build the bypass,” he said.
