Penang springs surprise mega-road project
As the 13th general election looms, Penang is scrambling to rectify its perennial traffic congestion problem that is expected to be an election campaign hot topic.
The state government’s answer: a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed yesterday in Putrajaya between the Penang government and Beijing Urban Construction Group (BUCG).
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
