Expressways of PenangExpressways of Penang (14 May, 2009)


There are a number of expressways in Penang State but only one true expressway on Penang Island. Even then, the Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway is not a true expressway from end to end, as it does not have controlled access all the way. In other words, there are turn-offs to Tesco in Gelugor and to the fishermen wharves all along the Sungai Nibong and Bayan Lepas stretches. In addition, there are at-grade intersections at Cecil Street, Macallum Street, Magazine Road Ghaut and Prangin Road Ghaut.

The true expressways in Penang are the North-South Expressway, the Butterworth Outer Ring Road and the Butterworth-Kulim Expressway. These are free of any at-grade crossings with other roads, railways or pedestrian paths, with no traffic signals, intersections and direct access from other roads or houses. All these are also toll roads, although the North-South Expressway is toll free from the Sungai Dua Toll Plaza in the north to the Juru Toll Plaza in the south.
