Penang govt welcomes Federal’s willingness to consider funding for PTMP

The Penang government will be submitting its application to the Federal Government to seek an allocation to fund the Penang Transport Master Plan (PTMP) once the necessary approvals are obtained.

Chief Minister Sdr Chow Kon Yeow said the state will submit the application to the Federal Government to finance some of the PTMP projects, in particular, the light rail transit (LRT) project.

“Public transport is under the Federal’s jurisdiction and LRT is a public transport. The Federal Government has been supporting rail projects in terms of funding in the Klang Valley,” Sdr Chow added.

一旦获得全面批准,槟州政府将向联邦政府申请拨款发展交通大蓝图,特别是轻快铁(LRT)项目。

槟州首席部长曹观友同志理解拨款不会一次性支付,而是在交通大蓝图建设期间分阶段进行,以免给联邦政府带来负担。

“我们将向联邦政府提交申请,为交通大蓝图计划项目提供资金,特别是轻快轨。公共交通属于联邦管辖范围,而轻快铁是公共交通工具,况且联邦政府一直在支持巴生谷的铁路项目。

“因此,作为公共交通项目的槟城轻快铁项目,也应该获得联邦政府拨款,”曹同志说。
