I was on the road today and, looking at the traffic, I couldn’t help wondering what the Penang government’s plans are to ease congestion in the state.
Surely, there is an urgent need to engage a planning expert come up with a blueprint for sustainable transport management, which would also include pedestrian-friendly streets, cycling lanes, buses, other forms of public transport, and ferries. A masterplan should be drawn up to plan the traffic corridors and ensure that future property development projects fit into this blueprint.
So here are some questions for the state government:
- Is it thinking of engaging a sustainable transport planning expert?
- Does it have a budget for this? And if so, how much?
