Wait for pre-feasibility study on Penang Hill cable car project, says CM

ANY decision regarding the development of the Penang Hill cable car project will be made once the pre-feasibility study is completed.


Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow said currently the pre-feasibility study of the cable project is still ongoing.


“The study has to be completed first and only after that, we will have a better idea whether the project is feasible or not,” Chow told a press conference in Komtar today.


He was responding to a question by a reporter when asked about the Consumer Association of Penang’s views that the state should just maintain the funicular hill railway and forego the cable car project.


Under Budget 2020 announced by Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng last year, the Federal Government has allocated RM100mil for the development of the Penang Hill cable car system.
