PENANG BRIDGE: THE PENANG BRIDGE INTERNATIONAL MARATHON 2013

The Second Penang Bridge, spanning 24km, with 16.9km over the sea, will be the longest bridge in South East Asia, linking Batu Kawan on the mainland with Batu Maung on the island.

The colour of the decorative lights will change according to the country’s major festivities or celebrations. This is similar to those at the Incheon Bridge in South Korea.

If the presence of a high-speed patrol car acts as a deterrent, well and good! The problem is  what happens when someone speeds anyway, and a chase ensues! At 160-180kph!

NST

BATU KAWAN: The Penang police will now be able to catch speed demons on the Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah Bridge, thanks to a courtesy patrol car provided by the bridge operator.

Bridge operator Jambatan Kedua Sdn Bhd (JKSB) handed over a 150PS Mitsubishi Lancer GTE 2.0 to the 24-hour police beat base at the Bandar Cassia toll plaza here.

JKSB managing director Datuk Dr Ismail Mohamed Taib said the patrol car would help policemen on duty to respond to emergencies quickly and deter motorists who speed.

“Since opening in March, we have seen many vehicles speeding at 180kph. We hope the new patrol car will make motorists think twice before speeding.

“The extra vehicle helps us keep to the minimum emergency response time of 10 minutes required by the Malaysian Highway Authority,” he said at the handover ceremony.

Second Penang Bridge users to enjoy 20% toll rate discount on Merdeka Day

GEORGE TOWN: All vehicles using the Jambatan Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah from the mainland to the Penang Island will enjoy a 20% discount on toll rates, in conjunction with the 57th Merdeka Day celebrations from midnight to 11.59pm on Aug 31.

According to a statement from the Jambatan Kedua Sdn Bhd public relations and communications department, those entering the bridge from the Plus Expressway at the bridge integrated toll plaza/Bandar Cassia Plus toll plaza, specifically at Plaza A, will also enjoy the same discounted rate.

GEORGE TOWN: A motorist escaped fiery death when her Perodua Alza burst into flames on Sultan Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah Bridge this morning.

The 33-year-old motorist managed to rush out from her car in the 7.50am incident.

Checks showed the island-bound motorist hit the road divider before the car caught fire. Fortunately, other users of the 24-km long bridge were not affected by the incident.

THE SECOND PENANG BRIDGE WILL NOT HELP EASE CONGESTION OF THE FIRST PENANG BRIDGE! This defeats the purpose for which it was built.

Toll rates for motorcycles and cars on the first bridge are RM1.40 and RM7 respectively but Penang motorists only pay RM1.12 and RM5.60 when using the Touch ‘n Go prepaid cards.

The toll rates for the Second Bridge are RM1.70 for motorcycles and RM8.50 for cars.

Malaysia Chronicle

GEORGE TOWN – Motorists are unlikely to ply the Sultan Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah (SAHMS) Bridge unless Putrajaya matches the 20 per cent discount offered to users of the first Penang Bridge, Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng asserted today.

“Penang motorists who use the Touch ‘n Go cards get a 20 per cent when they use the first Penang bridge so they will not use the SAHMS Bridge as the toll rates are higher and it also has no discounts,” he said in a statement issued today.

*ON APRIL FOOL’S DAY, YOU START PAYING TOLLS.

CHARGES:

1. Cars (Class 1) RM8.50
2. Motorcycles (Class 0) RM1.70

4. 3-axle or more vehicles (Class 3) RM70.10
5. Taxis (Class 4) RM8.50
6. Buses (Class 5), RM26.20

The toll will be collected from either the Bandar Cassia toll plaza for those going through the North-South Expressway (NSE), or at the bridge toll for those going via the Batu Kawan Interchange.

Those using the link road to exit the NSE via the Bandar Cassia toll plaza as well as those who entering NSE through the same toll plaza.

1. Cars (Class 1) RM0.60
2. 2-axle and 7-wheeled vehicles (Class 2) RM0.90

A 26-year-old student, said to be the nephew of a deputy minister, became the first person to jump off the newly-opened second Penang bridge.

He was said to have leapt off the Batu Kawan-bound bridge at 2.40pm.

He was rescued by fishermen some 500m from KM13.9 of the Sultan Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah bridge, the point where it is believed he leapt off.

Marine police arrived moments later and brought him to its base in Batu Uban.

He is now undergoing treatment at the Penang Hospital’s intensive care unit.

Balik Pulau OCPD Supt Lai Fah Hin said the suspect was now in stable condition and an investigation paper had been opened under Section 309 of the Penal Code for attempted suicide.

GEORGE TOWN: Hundreds of ‘Penangites’ are converging at a day-long carnival, organised in conjunction with the opening of the Second Penang Bridge tonight, as the celebration kicks into high gear.

A host of fun-filled activities have been planned at the carnival site since this morning.

Themed “Mai Riuhkan”, the crowd took the opportunity to check out the booths and to snap photos of the majestic bridge from several vantage points.

The adults were seen checking out simulation video games aside from getting free health checks while the children were being entertained by clowns with balloon sculptures.

Local artists such as Sara, Sheeda, Aweera, Faradhiya are expected to make their appearances at the carnival site at 2pm.

Penang Umno rumoured to boycott 2nd Penang bridge opening

PENANG, Feb 27 (Sin Chew Daily) – While people across the country are looking forward to the opening of the second Penang bridge, it was rumoured that Penang Umno might not attend the bridge’s opening ceremony.

The rumour said that most Penang Umno leaders would not welcome the arrival of the Prime Minister at the Penang International Airport on Saturday morning as they usually did and they would also not be attending other events held when the Prime Minister is in Penang, including a luncheon.

Sin Chew Daily was told that as the Penang state assembly opposition, Umno has been confronting with Pakatan Rakyat since it lost Penang in 2008. This time, voices of not attending the bridge’s opening ceremony were made within the state party, possibly because they are not happy with the arrangement of having Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to officiate the opening together.

众所周知,在二桥未建成之前,全长13.5公里的槟城大桥堪称全马最长的桥,也是槟州著名的地标,它的兴建是槟州现代发展史的一项重要事迹,让民众在依赖渡轮服务穿梭槟岛与北海之间的同时,又多了一个选择。
谈起宏伟的二桥,虽然,初时很多人都质疑该计划的可行性,包括峇都茅引桥坍塌事故等,导致工程多次延宕。最终在5年的漫长施工期后,工程终告完成,并捎来通车在即的喜讯。对二桥满怀期待的槟城人无不欣喜若狂。
二桥建竣,其24公里长的桥身,比起1985年通车的槟城大桥更长,晋升为我国甚至是东南亚第一长大桥,成为我国交通发展史上另一个里程碑。

CRACKS HAVE ALREADY APPEARED!

Cracks near 2nd Penang bridge

GEORGE TOWN: Cracks about 0.5cm wide and 23cm long have been found on the road kerb close to two concrete columns supporting the flyover ramps of the second Penang bridge.

At least six cracks have been spotted on the kerb on either side of the columns, which are about 80m apart, at the Batu Maung Interchange.

The sight of the cracks brings vividly to mind the incident in June last year where a ramp under construction collapsed near the exact spot, killing a motorist and injuring four other people.

The ramp has been completed and the discovery of the cracks soon after and before the bridge’s opening to the public, has alarmed the Consu­mers Association of Penang.

CAP education officer N.V. Subba­row questioned whether the cracks had compromised the sturdiness of the bridge.

“I am petrified just looking at the cracks,” he said at the site on Wednesday.

“Did the kerb crack due to the road sinking? Will the sinking of the road affect the sturdiness of the flyover?

“It is worrying to see so many cracks at the place where a mishap had oc

Subsidence in one part of the road under the second Penang Bridge. – The Malaysian Insider pic, January 26, 2014.

The part of Lebuhraya Dr Lim Chong Eu which passes under the ramps of the second Penang Bridge was closed to traffic after the ramp under construction collapsed last year. It was reopened to traffic about two months ago.

Within these two months, part of the road on either side of the pillar where the ramp collapse occurred has sunk.

This causes vehicles to bump up and down as they drive over this stretch and if they are fast, could cause them to veer to the left or right and collide into the railing or other vehicles.

The road subsidence will be getting more and more and thus, poses a danger to traffic, especially fast traffic.

Similar subsidence is not noticeable beside the other pillar in the distance in the photo.

So what is causing the subsidence at the foot of this pillar? On June 11, 2013, the Star carried a photo showing a large pool of water almost touching the foot of this pillar and a question was raised whether the water-logged soil could have caused soil movement and destabilised the scaffolding standing on it, leading to the collapse of the ramp just metres away from this pillar.

Electric vehicles to patrol new bridge

GEORGE TOWN: The Second Penang Bridge has gone full electric with new electric vehicles (EVs) in its fleet to patrol the longest bridge in Southeast Asia.

Part of the bridge’s efforts in maintaining its green credentials, it has acquired five Mitsubishi i-MiEV electric vehicles which are chargeable using a regular power socket.

The four-seater vehicle, with similar dimensions of a Perodua Viva, is able to travel 150km after an eight-hour full charge.

A fleet of Mitsubishi i-MIEV electric vehicles will be used to patrol the Second Penang Bridge.

Second Penang Bridge set to open in February 2014

GEORGE TOWN: The RM4.5bil Second Penang Bridge is expected to open to traffic in February next year after completion of the North-South Expressway (NSE) toll system and bridge physical safety testing.

Works Minister Datuk Fadillah Yusof said the NSE toll system had to be upgraded as users were required to pay a toll charge when they leave the expressway to enter the bridge.

“We are still making improvements and will open the bridge when the system functions well and is certified safe,” he told reporters after visiting the bridge on Thursday.

He said the 28-booth toll plaza in Batu Kawan would be the biggest of its kind in the country, but the Government had yet to decide on the toll rate.

Opening of second Penang bridge put off again

GEORGE TOWN: Motorists eager to try out the second Penang bridge linking Batu Maung here and Batu Kawan on the mainland will have to wait a little longer.

Expectations of travelling on the 24km bridge – the longest in South-East Asia and 20th longest in the world – ran high after it was reported that works would be completed yesterday, and the link accessible several days later.

A source said workers were still putting up the final touches and the soonest the bridge could be ready was in about a month’s time.

2nd Penang Bridge: Public safety still not a priority – Ravinder Singh

October 27, 2013

Hardly four months ago a section of the Second Penang Bridge collapsed causing one death and a few others to be injured.

No. No lesson seems to have been learnt. At 6.00pm on 26 October as I was driving from Batu Maung towards Georgetown, and had to pass under a stretch of the flyover still under construction, I was shocked to see red-hot bits falling just a couple of meters ahead, right in the path of the car.

Stopping to check out what caused that, I found that work to put in place the side panels of the flyover was in progress. Metal welding work was going on to hold the panels in place and the red-hot bits were the by-product of this and were falling down through the gap between the panel being welded and the huge beam to which they were being attached.

These red-hot bits of metal…could be as hot as 200 degrees Centigrade or more. Landing on cars they can damage the paintwork and landing on the bare arms of motorcyclists they could cause serious burns. And should some misjudgment happen when placing the panels in place, they could land on the road below.

a

The photo shows a forklift lifting a panel into position and traffic moving right underneath. Once in place, welding work starts, and the red-hot bits start falling onto the road below.

Why was this being done with traffic moving directly below? The plastic barriers could have been shifted to allow the traffic to pass under the section where this work has been completed.
