New road to Penang Bridge


The newly constructed slip-road from the North South Expressway to the Penang Bridge will be opened to traffic after midnight tomorrow.

In a statement, Penang Bridge Sdn Bhd (PBSB) deputy general manager Abd Rahman Hassan said the one kilometre long slip road at KM140.1, was part of the Penang Bridge widening project.

The new slip road is designed to ensure a smooth traffic flow from Juru heading towards the toll plaza area without disrupting the traffic going up north, he added.

Motorists heading towards the toll plaza are advised to drive on the correct lane and observe the directional signage to avoid overshooting the slip road.

However those who miss the slip road at KM140.1 are advised to make a U-turn at the Prai interchange.

He advised the public to be alert to all directional signages including the Variable Message notices.

For further details, call the PBSB at 04-3987421.
