PENANG THIRD LINK
Penang is a highly populated city with rapid growing number of vehicles (over 2 million) outnumbering the human population (over 1.5 million). Roads on the island are crawling with thousands of vehicles every single day, even traffic on alternative roads are beginning to increase, as drivers are exploring ways to escape traffic jams on the major roads. A proper traffic infrastructure is rudiment to support, disperse and distribute traffic to reduce congestion and bottle-necks.
The need to expand the traffic infrastructure is crucial for the economic development of Penang Island.
