GEORGE TOWN: A lack of details on how much explosives will be used to blast underground granites to build proposed tunnels connec­ting Gurney Drive to Penang airport became a sore point for those studying the Detailed Environmental Impact Assessment (DEIA) of the project.

A table in the DEIA showing the “estimation of explosives for tunnel blasting works” states that 717.4kg of Emulite, a brand of emulsion charge, would be needed.
