Connecting Malaysia & Beyond via rail (KTM’s electric train service (ETS) and Komuter train services) land and Sea Penang Sentral believes to function as an integrated transportation hub especially aiding in commuter services from Butterworth to Kamunting or Butterworth to Alor Setar.
Better yet, the state government is expected to complete this Penang Sentral Project by 2030 including the Light Rail Transit (LRT) services. Soon, we be riding them LRT like those city goers! (Source: TheStar)
With an allocation of RM 2.9 Billion and 6 million feet development space for this project, there’s anything and everything from transportation to malls, an office tower and a business hotel, as well as be equipped with service apartments.
Upon completion, 200,000 passengers are able to travel daily with 900 parking lots available for vehicles to be parked. Ditch the cars and get on the train cuz it’s way convenient than your mum driving you around! Plus it’s certainly cooler!
What Can We Expect?
