This is the changing face of Penang Island along the northeastern coastline off Tanjung Tokong – part of phase 2 of the Seri Tanjung Pinang project undertaken by E & 0.
The plan is to create a 760-acre artificial island on waters that fisher folk once used to work on.
Mind you, what you see in this photo is probably only an early phase of the reclamation – ie part of the island – with more to come.
This is on top of another 131 acres being reclaimed along Gurney Drive, making it a total of 891 acres being reclaimed.
Then, there is another 4,500 acres to be reclaimed to create three more islands off the southern coast of Penang Island’s under SRS Consortium’s proposal to finance a mind-blowing RM46bn in transport infrastructure.
