The Penang government is planning to kick-start the public inspection (PI) for the proposed Bayan Lepas Light Rail Transit (LRT) project in mid-August.
Chief Minister Sdr Chow Kon Yeow said the state was working towards having the PI held in mid-August and for it to run for three months.
“As the project proponent, the state is taking the project to its next phase which is the PI.
“This is following the conditional approval obtained from the Ministry of Transport (MoT) for the Bayan Lepas LRT and pursuant to Section 84 of the Land Public Transport Act 2010.
“The Penang government is required to deposit plans, sections and a book of reference for the PI. The PI is a binding requirement imposed by the MoT through the Land Public Transport Agency (APAD) before the Railway Scheme receives its final approval,” Sdr Chow told a press conference at The TOP in Komtar today.
