Penang state government should review its mega projects

Review the Penang transport masterplan with a view to cutting costs and consider alternatives. Put on hold all projects related to the masterplan as well as other luxury and mega projects until the review is completed. Consider alternative plans for transport that focus on public transport and that are cheaper. Give priority to use the limited funds including from the federal government for flood prevention and mitigation, repair of eroded hillslopes and rehabilitation and protection of forests, water catchment areas and coastal resources. Make public the details of all the components of the transport masterplan including estimates of costs, financing, loans and assumptions of cost recovery. Make public the agreements entered into by the state and local authorities with the developers and proponents of the transport masterplan and other expensive projects in Penang state.
