A heavy downpour tonight resulted in massive jams in parts of Penang Island, once again prompting the question: is the island’s supporting infrastructure adequate to cope with the relentless higher-density property development witnessed in recent years.
A normal half-hour drive from Green Lane to Tanjung Bungah took three times as long in these conditions.
Traffic around Green Lane, Scotland, Kelawei Road (which has witnessed high-density property development), Macalister Road and Pulau Tikus was reduced to a crawl.
Do you think the transport and drainage systems are adequate?
