Penang Sentral

Penang Sentral is a future inter-modal transportation hub and a commercial development currently under construction in Penang. Construction of the transportation hub will start in Q1 2009 and is projected to be complete by 2011. Meanwhile, it is expected that the whole commercial development will be finished in 2015.[1] The transportation hub will cater to public transportation for sea, rail and buses. Currently, a RM5 million temporary bus terminal has been constructed at the site to facilitate 4,500 passengers a day.[2] The transport hub will handle approximately 65 million passengers a year.[3]

The design and construction of Penang Sentral will be handled by the firm Veritas Architects.[4] Penang Sentral was modeled on Kuala Lumpur Sentral[5]

The Penang Sentral project was launched by former Malaysian Prime Minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi on July 31, 2007.[3]

The project, after several delayed due to some technical issues, which is expected to take off by the fourth-quarter of 2014, will boast state-of-the-art amenities for users of the northern transport hub.

It is learnt that project developer Penang Sentral Sdn Bhd has submitted its building plans to the Seberang Prai local authorities. The source said once the approvals have been obtained, the developer is expected to take about 32 months to complete the transport hub.
