Bukit Tambun- These are images of the aerial view of the heavy traffic congestion that happens at Jalan Batu Kawan and Jalan Bukit Tambun. Our team visited the area and found out that the congestion could cause a delay upto 35 to 45 minutes, sometimes even longer. Local resident are in turmoil when no action are even being planned to handle this problem and the people living in the surrounding area have to endure this problem on a daily basis.
The same concerns where shared by YB Tuan Goh Choon Aik, State Assemblymen of Bukit Tambun on his Facebook account expressing his regrets on the traffic congestion that causes problems in many ways for his constituents in Bukit Tambun. Everyone including people travelling to work, parents sending their children off to school or even emergency cases are burdened by being stuck in this traffic almost everyday for the past year.
Lack of planning to overcome this traffic problem by the relevant authorities are one of the reasons. Here, SPT News requests the JKR, MPSP and State-level officials to get involved in this issue to find a long-term solution to this uprising problem. Bringing better connectivity to our people throughout Seberang Perai Tengah must be made a priority to ensure Pulau Pinang truly becomes a condusive and sustainable state.
Together as a community!!!!
