Malaysia's Mother of Mega Projects

Cheap: The "mega" Penang bridge cost only RM800 million

 "... this mega (RM6.3b) project will be tied - financially and functionally - with another one, even more titanic (RM25b) in scale." - Double whammy .. fz.com 15/10/13
Tunnel. When Dr M built the North South Highway, the KLCC, the KL International Airport and even the Penang bridge, they called them mega projects. They were even behind some of the protests against the construction of these infrastructure. Now, a single monster project by the Penang state government may beat all of Dr M's so-called mega projects put together. Ironically, these are the very people who've been dead against all mega projects before.
The price of having the Penang tunnel will, in effect, exceed RM30 billion. One massive project dependent on another massive project. That's according to fz.com, the business portal owned by The Edge.

The Penang tunnel project makes sense. Penang is the second most important state economically speaking, after Selangor. The project that does not make sense is the Malacca to Sumatra bridge.

How about focusing on getting a rail link from KL or Singapore to Malacca.....??????? ...It will cost a fraction of the price...and will bring greater economic benefits.....

Anon,

I assume you, like Anon 6.08 (who wrote "The Penang tunnel project makes sense. Penang is the second most important state economically speaking, after Selangor. The project that does not make sense is the Malacca to Sumatra bridge."), can't wait to kiss Guan Eng's tunnel.

Well, here's the thing: if you are so OK with the RM30 billion tunnel, then you have to be OK with the Malindo bridge and you have to be OK too with all Tun M's mega projects and the PNB's proposed 100-storey skyscraper, etc etc ..

Right? And Guan Eng and his pals now cannot lah accuse their rivals of building mega projects to reflect their egos because he is doing exactly the same, if not worse.

Ayapan!!

RM30 billllion?!! And this mafaker Guan Eng is making hell of an issue over the RM10 million grant it offered to Prasarana to provide "free" bus rides during peak hours in Penang??

Does mafaker knows how much is Prasarana's cost to run the public bus service in Penang or not?

If it's RM50 million, can give or not the grant? What's RM50 million compared with RM30 billllion mafaker??

- you can't fool all the people all the time -
