JALAN Tun Sardon – a main artery in Balik Pulau — will remain closed until Nov 15.

Balik Pulau OCPD Supt A. Anbalagan said engineers were carrying out work on the landslide-stricken road.

“We will open the road earlier if the work can be done before the Nov 15 deadline.”

In a statement yesterday, he urged motorists to use Jalan Teluk Kumbar or Jalan Teluk Bahang as an alternative.

It was reported there were 21 landslides along Jalan Tun Sardon on Sunday.

Meanwhile, George Town OCPD Asst Comm Anuar Omar said Jalan Paya Terubong in front of Green Garden Apartments heading towards Relau would be closed temporarily as a big tree there had uprooted.

Over in north Seberang Prai, OCPD Asst Comm Noorzainy Mohd Noor said several roads were still closed.

Among them are Jalan Bertam Indah in Kepala Batas, Jalan Lahar Yooi to Sungai Dua, Lahar Yooi to Padang Menora and Jalan Sungai Dua to the highway in front of the mosque in Sungai Dua.

“In Sri Pinang, Jalan Perusahaan Sungai Lokan is also closed temporarily.

“Three roads in Tasek Gelugor, namely Jalan Matahari Naik, Jalan Padang Tonsun and Jalan Ara Kuda, are also off limits to traffic,” he said in a statement.

ACP Noorzainy, however, said the roads in Bertam, Teluk Air Tawar, Mak Mandin and Butterworth were reopened to traffic.

At press time, Jalan Batek, Jalan Song Ban Kheng, Jalan Seri Bayu, Jalan Perkampungan Juru and Jalan Tok Kangar in central Seberang Prai are still closed.
