Review PTMP for transparency’s sake


VIEWS for and against the Penang Transport Master Plan (PTMP) are now well documented after the publication of several articles by writers including Roger Teoh, Dr Lim Mah Hui and Joshua Woo. But as a Penangite, I am obliged to chip in my two sen worth in response to the invitation for more feedback on the PTMP by Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow.

Woo says the PTMP’s financial structure is “self-financing” by selling reclaimed state land (a land swap business model) and there would be no need to ask for federal funding to avoid adding to the RM1 trillion debt of our country. But I beg to differ.
