Flyover to be built in Bukit Mertajam
A flyover will be constructed between Jalan Nangka (near Aeon Seberang Prai City) and Jalan Sungai Rambai in Bukit Mertajam heading towards well known attraction Juru Auto City by 2014.
State Public Works, Utilities and Transportation Committee chairman Lim Hock Seng said the 500m-long road project, to be undertaken by the Public Works Department (JKR), was provided for under the 10th Malaysia Plan.
“This road, which will cut across Jalan Permatang Batu, is necessary to accommodate the construction of KTM Berhad’s double-tracking railway project nearby.
“The present level-crossing on this road will be closed in two months’ time and temporarily shifted a few metres away,” he said outside the state assembly.
