NGOs: Rail link better, not tunnel


GEORGE TOWN: Two active NGOs in Penang want the Penang Undersea Tunnel project scrapped because it will be redundant with two bridges connecting the island to the mainland.

Instead, they want the state government to focus on building a cross-channel rail link and return to the five-year-old principle of “moving people, not cars” that was formed in the original Penang Transport Master Plan (PTMP).
