Objections to PIL1


Penang Forum : article by Anil Netto


Environmental activists concerns

on the proposed PIL 1


More Highways = More Traffic !



PIL 1 is highly controversial !

Are you FOR or AGAINST this mega highway?


The proposed Pan Island Link (PIL 1) will connect Gurney Drive

to the airport and the Second Penang Bridge.

The construction would impact the environment as there would be

tunnels along the 19.5km highway as it cuts through hills

but it is supposed to cut travelling time.

State Government HERE
