Bayan Lepas LRT Project is set to be finalized soon


Bayan Lepas LRT Project is set to commence later this year, according to Transport Minister Anthony Loke Siew Fook. The announcement was made yesterday during a press conference following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Railway Assets Corporation (RAC) and the Penang State Housing Board (LPNPP) for the redevelopment of Kampung Manis. Chief Minister Y.A.B. Tuan Chow Kon Yeow also attended the ceremony.

Minister Loke revealed that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has instructed the Malaysian Ministry of Transport to prepare a Cabinet memorandum for approval. This significant step underscores the commitment to advancing Penang’s transportation infrastructure.

“The Penang LRT Project (Komtar-Bayan Lepas) will be finalized soon. Yesterday, I had a meeting with the Prime Minister regarding the Penang LRT Project, and he directed the Ministry of Transport to prepare a Cabinet memorandum for approval in terms of its implementation,” stated Minister Loke.

Earlier, the Federal Government had agreed to assist the Penang State Government in expediting the Komtar-Bayan Lepas LRT Project, estimated to cost RM10 billion. The project aims to address the growing transportation needs of the state, providing a modern and efficient public transit system.

    memorandum preparation will take 2 years, then another year for cabinet to debate and discuss. And the whole thing will repeat again after next election.

    Just wonder if Penang is governed by any other party will it be better on development, too much political interference. Look at KL mrt, its already got 3 lines in operation, we don’t see what’s happening in Penang that happen in KL.

    Chances to be better almost 0% but chances to get worse will be more than 0%.
