Dialogue on sea tunnel plan this Sunday

PENANGITES living on the mainland will soon get a chance to engage in a dialogue on the proposed undersea tunnel project by the state government.

Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said a public dialogue on the project would be held at Dewan Besar, Sungai Dua, at 10am on March 24.

“People are encouraged to attend this dialogue to learn more about the project and to give their feedback.

“We will invite representatives from Konsortium Zenith BUCG Sdn Bhd to explain more about the project, especially to residents in north Seberang Prai.

“The event will be conducted in three languages — English, Malay and Hokkien,” he said.

He was speaking after inspecting the construction of a sepaktakraw court and upgrading of a community hall in Taman Cantik, Mak Mandin, on Saturday.

Lim said a similar public dialogue was earlier held for islanders at the Town Hall in the Esplanade on March 10.

Earlier, he said the state had allocated RM55,000 to construct the new sepaktakraw court with roof and RM55,000 to upgrade the dilapidated community hall in Taman Cantik.
