GEORGE TOWN: A written report on the Penang undersea tunnel will be sent to the state government next week, says Penang Port Commission (PPC) chairman Datuk Tan Teik Cheng(pic).

"We are finalising the written review with Penang Port Sdn Bhd (PPSB) including a detailed report on the shipping aspect before submitting," said Tan after a tour of the ferry terminals on Saturday (March 26).

"The report will include our reservations on the construction of the project," added Tan.

Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow had said that the project's concession company and consultant had presented their findings on the project's feasibility study last month.

He said the state is waiting to get written reviews from PPC and PPSB on the project.

This, said Chow, would enable the state to make further consideration though technically, the project can be implemented.

The undersea tunnel delivery partner Consortium Zenith Construction (CZC) completed the feasibility report at the end of 2020, after a four-year delay.

The 6.5km tunnel is part of several projects under the RM46bil Penang Transport Master Plan.
