GEORGE TOWN: Fast lanes on Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway at The Light Waterfront will be closed to make way for the construction of an interchange.

In a statement by developer IJM Land, it said the fast lanes in each direction bound for George Town and Bayan Lepas will be closed and diverted from Oct 15 to March 31 next year.
