Oh no, not more massive swap deals in Penang!

We all know we need better public transport for Penang – but not at any price, not if it means more disastrous land swap deals involving even bigger tracts of land reclamation for more multi-million ringgit sea-view bungalows and condos.

Enough is enough with these controversial multi-billion swap deals that favour powerful interests!

Say goodbye to sustainability, if the EIA process we recently witnessed is repeated.

What’s with all these land swap deals anyway? What happened to open tenders for the sale of land? Why should infrastructure deals be linked to land reclamation? Why can’t they be handled separately? Transparency? I think not. This is certainly not CAT. Not by a long shot.

Who is Penang for – the people or the interests of wealthy and well-connected corporations and large developers? Who cares about the interests of the ordinary people, including the fisher folk, right?

The news report below makes me upset because I sense deep down that this is not in the best long-term interests of the people of Penang. They won’t be the ones making obscene amounts of profit off land – land that rightfully belongs to the state and which should be used for the common good and not almost exclusively for high-end property development.

Right before our very eyes, Penang (and its surrounding waters) is being carved out and allotted to major corporate and property players. Like I said some time ago, Penang (and the coastal areas of Johor, for that matter) has become a playground for wealthy developers and corporate interests. What a letdown.

Gamuda leads pack for multi-billion ringgit Penang transport job

by david tan

GAMUDA Bhd is the favourite to land the job as the Project Development Partner (PDP) to oversee the implementation of key components of an integrated transportation plan on Penang island

The others in the running for the PDP job that is estimated at more than RM5.5bil for the initial phase are IJM Corp Bhd, MMC Corp Bhd, the Scomi Group and WCT Holdings Bhd.

The state that is expected to issue a request for proposal (RFP) exercise next month have made it clear that only companies with a minimum RM3bil annual turnover and a track record of 15 years can participate.

Two key components of the RFP would be to build a 17.5 kilometre light rail transit (LRT) project that connects the Komtar building to the airport and a link cutting across the island from Bayan Lepas to Tanjong Bungah.

The Bayan Lepas-Tanjong Bungah cuts across a mountainous terrain and would require tunnels.

“The LRT project alone is estimated at RM4.5bil,” said a source.

In return for implementing the entire transportation system, which is expected to cost RM27bil and to be done over many years, the PDP would be awarded with the rights to reclaim a sizeable amount of land in the state.

Sources familiar with the proposed plan said Gamuda met with the state government officials about two months ago to present its proposal.

“The proposal to construct a LRT line would need the license from the Federal Government which would be the responsibility of the PDP. For instance, if Gamuda wins the mandate, it would also be responsible for securing the licence,” the source said.

The Scomi Group is the dark horse for the project because it already has a mandate from the Federal Government to carry out a train project on the island.

“The mandate was given in 2008 but could not be implemented after the state government fell into the hands of the opposition,” said an industry official.

In exchange for carrying out the project, the state is giving the PDP the rights to reclaim large tracts of land and the option is in two areas on the island.

The first option is an area in the southern part of the island involving reclamation of some 2,000 acres of which about 30% or some 600 acres will be carved out for the state for the future expansion of the Penang International Airport and to enlarge the Free Industrial Zone (FIZ).

The other option is for the PDP to reclaim the seagrass land located in between the Penang Bridge and the river mouth of Sungai Pinang, which is popularly known as the Middle Bank seagrass.

The state has already indicated that it would start work on an integrated transportation master plan last month.

In relation to this, on June 13, Penang Local Government, Traffic Management and Flood Mitigation Committee chairman Chow Kon Yeow had said in a press conference the Penang government would call for a RFP in August for companies to bid to be the Project Delivery Partner (PDP) in the state’s Penang Transport Master Plan strategy.

According to Chow, the appointed PDP must be a reliable partner to the state to guarantee the projects’ delivery.

“They will have to oversee all the projects with costs estimated at RM27bil. The costs cover highway infrastructure (RM16bil) and public transport (RM9bil). The institutional costs amount to RM905mil,” Chow had said during the press conference held in June.

Chow had said that any interested company or consortium comprising local or international companies could take part in the RFP and the submission period was open for three months. Chow said the appointed PDP had to ensure that the projects complied with government policies and procedures, and obtain all relevant approvals including securing of funds.

He said the PDP would not be working on the projects but only acting as a consultant to the state.

“However, the PDP will be involved in the calling for tender process of the transport master plan projects and will have to step in should the contractors fail to deliver, either to replace the contractors or to do it themselves under their own cost,” Chow had said.

The concept is almost similar to Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng’s plan to build a tunnel between Penang island and Butterworth together with a traffic dispersal system near the Gurney Drive and Tanjong Bungah area.

The project was awarded to Consortium Zenith BUCG Sdn Bhd, a joint venture between a Malaysian company and a China company. The entire project is expected to cost RM6.3bil and is to be paid by the company having some 110 acres of land in the reclaimed area of Tanjong Tokong.

The dream of owning a RM72,500 home is becoming a reality with the development of Bandar Cassia Affordable Housing Scheme by the Penang state government.

Phase 1 which comprises 520 residential units will be completed in early 2017. Designed by Surbana International Consultants, which is synonymous with the development of Singapore HDB homes, the affordable homes in Bandar Cassia will be unmatched in terms of quality, design and concept.

I agree with some of the comments on en bloc above.

Given the scarcity of land on the Penang island, en bloc will free up large tracks of land that currently houses the low rise blocks.

Building more apartments on these free-up land will ease the pressure on the ever escalating property prices in Penang.

Plain Truth: Building more apartments on these free-up land will ease the pressure on the ever escalating property prices in Penang. But will the prices adjust to more realistic level? I doubt given the ‘en-bloc frenzy & exhilaration’ of developers’ addiction for maxi-profiteering from ‘en-bloc’ surreal property pricing. Which developer is going to be price-conscience given the new opportunity to up their game another level in property development.

Penangites face a daunting challenge to fight the dubious privatizations of the state transportation infrastructures. We should be wary of the road building solution that lead to more land reclamation. The state government’s transportation policies are characterized by misallocation to low-value activities with misguided policy directions that stifle innovation and boost transportation costs. One damaging policy direction involves efforts to finance the state transportation infrastructures project through state-private land swap which ignored the need to smooth out cash flow problems for multi billion mega project. With a shortage of land, the state government can only rely on land reclamation as… Read more »

In principle, like Anil, I believe that public transport is the way to go considering the population and density increase. I also think that land reclamation is destroying this Island. But a few issues with this plan. 1. A public transport system should not prioritise highways. It should prioritise public transport. LRT, trams or whatever, preferably should be built underground like in Sg to minimise disruption to the environment. Why does the state plan to only have one line from Komtar to Bayan Lepas. Who even goes to Komtar anymore? A public transport system has to have a good comprehensive… Read more »

Given the rapid urbanisation of Malaysia and the infrastructure extension, development land is now a scarce resource, especially in Kuala Lumpur and Penang. Expanding of the boundary is not a solution in maximizing land usage. All buildings have an unwritten expiry date. Malaysia can learn from our neighbours in renewing the aging and dated parts of our cities. One obvious solution is en bloc sales. En bloc sales are most notably used in city states like Hong Kong and Singapore. This happens when a majority of owners in a building agree to sell the entire block for redevelopment, effectively forcing… Read more »

My friend who works in a developer firm told me that the company is actively looking at some old estate of terrace houses in Penang, with the plan for En-bloc offer to take up the land for high rise high density development in the land scarce Penang. Already some residents are eagerly waiting to cash in, so that they could migrate to mainland for a bigger house. This is likely trend that will continue to redefine the landscape of Penang island. The developer terms it as a win-win development but I guess old timers prefer the charm of old Penang.

Banyak anak-anak kucing kurap buatan swap deal siapa nak tanggung kalau tak jaga langsung?
Malu lah hal ini kalau di biarkan saja di kampong.
