Penang Bridge Speed Limits - Beware of Police Speed Traps

Lately lots of sound here and there talking about summons they had to pay for speeding on the Penang Bridge. To be clear, the summon comes with a copy of their vehicle picture so that no confusion arises.

Since early this year, many speed trap cameras have been set up along the entire bridge, even on hot sunny days and early morning office rush hours. As a results, many motorists and individuals have been booked by the police.

For the benefits of all readers here and Penang Bridge road users, I am pleased to enclosed herewith some clarifications from the PPSB with regards to the 3 different speed limits imposed on the Penang Bridge.

For easy reference, please see the pictorial summary of the speed traps attached.


Penang Bridge Sdn Bhd explains the different speed limits imposed while driving on the bridge.

There are three different speed limits at specific locations on the bridge.

(1) The 50 km / hr speed limit applies to entrance to the bridge from Bayan Lepas and Jelutong and the exit from the bridge to Bayan Lepas and Jelutong.

(2) The 70 km / hr limit is enforced on km 4.3 to km 8.5 for both Penang and Perai bound-vehicles, while

(3) The 80 km / hr limit is implemented from km 0.4 approaching the bridge (after toll plaza) to km 4.3 for both Penang and Perai bound-vehicles.
These speed limits are in accordance with the Road Safety Audit conducted and endorsed by the Malaysian Highway Authorities. They are meant to promote safe driving and better motoring habits.

For convenience, signages to alert drivers of the varying speed limits have been posted at the starting point of the speed limit is imposed.

Fatal accident causes 4-hour gridlock on Penang Bridge

BUTTERWORTH: A fatal accident involving a motorcycle and a trailer on the Penang Bridge Monday morning held up hundreds of motorists, bringing traffic almost to a standstill for more than four hours at the North-South Expressway from Sungai Dua to the bridge.

State Traffic chief DSP Abdul Rahim Md Din said the accident, which killed the 52-year-old motorcyclist, happened at 6.50am on the lane heading towards the island.

The motorcyclist, Azhar Pakwanteh, died on the spot due to severe injuries, he said.

He was from Lunas in Kedah and was on his way to work at a factory in Bayan Lepas, Abdul Rahim said.

His body was sent to the Seberang Jaya Hospital. - Bernama

Cable Fire Causes Massive Traffic Jam On Penang Bridge

The jam stretched for several kilometres to the city and Butterworth after the fire broke out at 5.52pm yesterday.

GEORGE TOWN, July 11 (Bernama) - Hundreds of vehicles were stranded for about two hours on the entrance and exit lanes of Penang Bridge Monday after a cable caught fire.

A spokesman for Penang Bridge Sdn Bhd (PBSB) said there was massive traffic congestion as the cable fire occurred at the peak hour of 5.52pm.

He said traffic improved at 7pm after the fire was put out and repairs were done to the cable.

Penang Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) general manager Abdul Aziz Jaafar told Bernama the cable under the bridge caught fire at 5.25pm.

He said the fire did not affect electricity supply to the state as it was only a standby cable.

"The 132kV cable fire was completely put out at 6.30pm. TNB is investigating the cause," he added.

Power cable fire on Penang bridge causes massive traffic jam

BUTTERWORTH: Three power cables caught fire on the Penang Bridge, causing massive traffic jams on both sides of the bridge that stretched several kilometers.

The 10.40am fire at km1.5 of the island-bound stretch also caused a brief power disruption on the island, especially in the Bayan Lepas area.

The bumper-to-bumper crawl stretched several kilometers on both sides of the bridge.

Black smoke was be seen billowing at the stretch where the cables were located under the bridge.

The fire was put out some five hours later at about 3.20pm.

State Public Works, Utilities and Transportation Committee chairman Lim Hock Seng said TNB switched to an alternative power source to restore power supply within five minutes.

“Necessary action is also being taken to determine the cable fault and to have it repaired as soon as possible,” he said Saturday.

Lim said he believed the incident was not due to human error, as the cable was located under the bridge.

Meanwhile, the traffic jam on the bridge caused many to turn to the ferries.

A ferry terminal spokesperson said both terminals on the island and mainland had seen a queue starting about 11am.

As at 3.40pm, the queues stretched as far as 1.5km from the terminals.

“We have six ferries operating. The ferries will travel slower during low tide,” the spokesperson said.

UPDATE: 19 Feb 2009

Traffic along the Penang bridge, heading towards the mainland, came to a standstill when a crane, used in the widening works, overturned at KM3.6 of the Penang Bridge early this morning.

A Penang Bridge Sdn Bhd (PBSB) said the crane that was used in construction works to widen the lanes of the bridge, collapsed at about 3am and reduced the two-lane pathway towards Prai to just one.
"The incident has caused a massive traffic jam for those heading towards the mainland, especially from the Jelutong highway, Gelugor and Bayan Lepas," said the spokesman when contacted here today.
He added that PBSB had managed to remove the crane at 11am but expected the bridge to remain congested for a few hours.

Please be patience
