Worrying images along hill-slope road in Tanjung Bungah

Bandaid: Tanjung Bungah hillslope covered with plastic sheets

If a short stretch of road on the hill slopes of Tanjung Bungah, near Chee Seng Garden, has turned out like this, what is in store for us when work starts on the 19.5km six-lane Pan Island Link highway, much of it will hug the hills of Penang?

The above photo was taken a few days ago by a concerned nearby resident who was worried about what would happened if it rained heavily.

Last month, a few aerial shots of the area were posted on the Penang Hills Watch Facebook page. What on earth are they doing there?

This illustrates some of the hazards posed by tampering with sensitive hill slopes.

Is anyone can advise me. I plan to buy the house near to chee seng garden jalan 9. Is it a wise choice. As there will be interlink paired Road pass by and was told the area is sinking down. But the property is rather cheap. The seller ask for 1. 5 mil for 3000 sq ft.

The occupied houses in front of the slopes should be declared a danger zone and occupants to vacate before a tragedy happens. Thanks to Anil Netti for highlighting.


The houses below are in great danger. They should move out fast.


Appalling! But what you see in Paya Terubong is even more disgusting act of rape of forest hills.
Now the PIL is not even approved to go ahead, but how come they ‘rapists’ could rape the Paya Terubong hills? Penang state gomen & MBPP, pls answer with all the CAT exclamations.


Starbucks will eliminate plastic straws from all its outlets by 2020. Are sustainability strategies an essential part of doing business?



To protect the environment, let’s break up with single-use plastics


The Malaysian Insight: Penang Forum, a loose coalition of state civil groups, is racing against time to persuade the public to object to the proposed Pan Island Link 1 (PIL1) highway project.

The deadline for the public to submit feedback on the PIL1 environmental impact assessment (EIA) report is September 24. The report was made public in July.

Chow’s vision 2030 is green sustainability now big question mark if Anil’s assessment goes mainstream reaching out to majority of Penangites???


LGE announced cheaper cars and homes in Penang citing Rehda cost analysis SST Vs GST, and are this in tandem with Chow’s 2030 vision?


Car centric PTMP?
CM Chow must be thinking Penang island can grow bigger all the time! And of course digging more tunnels until the whole of Penang hill range collapses shaking Komtar Tower of Arrogance!


Great gasing spinner. As whole Penang hill collapse and pg island will sink into the sea. Orso hill cutting in pg cause super typhoon mangkoft in Philippines and soon striking Macau and hong land. The effects of pg hill cutting orso cause super hurricane Florence to hit at USA.


This highway will b a grand disaster. We can even get normal roads to stay up when around hills. The CM… https://t.co/oxep3388Qn


This is not a highway. Just like existing road like to bukit Bendera.


It’s a 6-lane highway, dude!


Ah pek, twist and still driving 4wds and wonder in the bush off track. Highway has not started and the pic shows road construction by private. Why no complain when owner submit development order?
If highway of 6 lanes, it will be a viaduct like you see in hong land on steep slopes. Still play play fading?


Pls try harder, ah ghee dude!


Ah pek, what a shame. No facts just kau beh kau bu.
