Penang LRT – Mutiara Line


The unveiling of the new Penang LRT Mutiara Line alignment marks a significant milestone in Penang’s transportation infrastructure. Spanning 28 kilometers with 22 stations featuring overhead tracks, the line will offer direct access to the Penang International Airport and link with the Electric Train Service (ETS) at Butterworth, with KOMTAR designated as the future ETS interchange.

With a keen focus on accessibility and inclusivity, the Mutiara Line boasts 1,220 car parking spaces, 1,315 motorcycle parking spaces, and is designed to be OKU-friendly. Operating from 6:00 am to 12:00 am, it aims to cater to the diverse needs of commuters round the clock.

The alignment’s journey commences from Penang Sentral on the mainland, traversing to Macallum, the proposed first station on Penang Island. From there, it weaves through key areas including Komtar, Jalan Gurdwara, Solok Sungai Pinang, and East Jelutong, culminating at Silicon Island. Notably, the revised plan excludes stations initially proposed at Bandar Sri Pinang and Sky Cab along Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway.

The procurement strategy, divided into three components, underscores the project’s comprehensive approach. Civil construction works for Segments 1 and 2, encompassing Silicon Island to Komtar and Komtar to Penang Sentral respectively. Additionally, a turnkey contract for system and carriage works ensures the project’s holistic development. With construction slated to commence in 2025, anticipation mounts for the realization of enhanced transportation connectivity and accessibility across Penang.

Here are some proposed locations (S02-S15) as outlined in the 2019 EIA report. The first part, which includes a few stations in Sungai Pinang and George Town, is intentionally omitted here as it has already been revised.
