More news on rail network developments from the tabling of Budget 2024 today. The upcoming LRT project for the state of Penang has been estimated to cost in the region of RM10 billion, according to plans by the Penang state government through a PPP (public-private partnership).

The LRT project is part of the Penang Transport Master Plan (PTMP) that will connect Komtar and Bayan Lepas with 23 stations along the 26.8 km line.
