GEORGE TOWN: The Penang Structure Plan, which is out-dated, needs to be revised to incorporate the three proposed man-made islands off the south coast near Permatang Damar Laut meant to fund the Penang Transport Master Plan (PTMP).

State Local Government, Traffic Management and Flood Mitigation Committee chairman Chow Kon Yeow said a special task force would adopt a master plan to guide the development of the new islands set to have a population of 300,000.
