GEORGE TOWN: Penang Forum relied heavily on Halcrow Consultants Sdn Bhd’s report and did not consider certain things when drawing up their version of a transport masterplan, Penang Transport Council chairman Chow Kon Yeow said.

“They chose to ignore a qualifying statement in Halcrow’s report that the (Halcrow) plan was just a conceptual plan and that no detailed studies had been undertaken,” he said, adding that the state was not adopting an adversary stance against Penang Forum.
