Octopus bridge is going down

PENANG state has decided to tear down the octopus-style pedestrian bridge near Komtar which has been in existence for more than 20 years.

It will be replaced with a traffic light-controlled crossing soon.

At a press conference on May 10, Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said this decision was made because the bridge is not being used much as many people do not use it to cross the road.

He added that the bridge is not safe for use especially at night.

“We are also considering problems faced by the disabled community who can’t climb up the long stairs” said Lim during his tour to the bridge.

The demolition of the bridge will begin after the 30-day observation and feedback from the public.

The public can make their feedback via rajendran @ mppp.gov.my or write to MPPP (Penang Island Municipal Council).-EJ-
