One island-bound lane on Penang Bridge to close for six months

STARTING Monday, one lane on Penang Bridge from the mainland to the island at the midspan section will be closed for its year-long maintenance that began six months ago.

This temporary closure will be until Aug 21.

During peak hours in the mornings and evenings, PLUS Malaysia Berhad will set up a contraflow using a lane from the other side to help with island-bound traffic.

PLUS urged motorists heading to the island, especially during peak hours, to consider using the second Penang bridge or the ferry instead.

The bridge operator said the lane closure was to ensure public safety during maintenance work.
