JURU INTERCHANGE (JURU IC)
The North Coast Pair Road (NCPR) to be undertaken by the Zenith-BUCG, only ends at Jalan Lembah Permai in Tg Bungah from Teluk Bahang, forming only the western section of NCPR.
To complete the road connection to George Town, the proposed eastern section of NCPR comprises:
- Construction of an elevated dual two-lane road over Jalan Lembah Permai, Jalan Tg Bungah and Jalan Tg Tokong; and
- Construction of interchange ramps between Jalan Cheah Seng Kim and Jalan Sg Kelian junctions along Jalan Tg Bungah together with U-turns at the junctions.
This eastern section of the NCPR will end before the Seri Tanjung Pinang Phase 1 (STP 1) development, as the continuing section would be another elevated dual two-lane road in STP 1 area, which is subsequently connected to the dual four-lane Gurney Expressway.
Addresses severe congestion that occurs at:
- The interchange along the NorthSouth Expressway;
- The Jalan Kebun Nenas-Jalan Perusahaan signalised T-junction.
