SRS Consortium claims their transport proposal is superior than the Better, Cheaper, Faster framework put forward by Penang Forum. But why are their 20 volumes not available for public scrutiny online then?
They are only available for viewing by Penang Transport Council members. But are these council members then at liberty to inform the public about the details. No, because each page is stamped “Confidential”. So much for transparency.
If their proposal is so great, why can’t the public see it? Is it because SRS and the state government don’t want the public to know the exactly alignment of the elevated LRT and north-south highway and which houses and shops will have to be demolished?
And why is the state supporting the SRS proposal when it has not yet gone through review by independent sustainable transport experts?
In contrast, the Better, Cheaper, Faster framework is available online for public scrutiny – by anyone and everyone.
