Flyover to Jln Tan Sri Teh Ewe Lim - accident trap and queue cutting


Coming from the Gelugor Round-About thru Green Lane, there is a 1 lane flyover going to Jalan Tan Sri Teh Ewe Lim. This ramp is pretty tricky and also some times vehicles try to swerve into the middle lane last minute to continue on GreenLane. That's why if you notice, the middle lane usually jams up here, and in this case the left lane is now usually the faster lane during peak hours.

So what do we do about this type of concerns. Or maybe other ideas and feedback we have, be it adding a left turn signal option since there is a separate left turn (e.g. the road turning into Tmn Tun Sardon/Brown Garden from Gelugor)?

Well for Penangites, you have the option of submitted a feedback, complain and / or suggestion thru penang gov's website, http://epintas.penang.gov.my/.

E-Pintas is Penang Complaints and Information System. Syabas to Penang.

For the Jln Tan Sri Teh Ewe Lim, below is my f/back to the website as below

Perkara : Flyover to Jln Tan Sri Teh Ewe Lim - accident trap and queue cuttingAduan : From the Gelugor round-about thru Green Lane, the most right lane ramps to the \'overpass\'. And the other two lanes (middle and most left) continue towards Masjid Negeri. The problem is alot of motorist from the most right lane, last minute after passing the last traffic light before the overpass/flyover, try to cut lane into the middle lane to go towards Masjid Negeri instead of using the overpass. This creates a very accident prone area, and queue cutting. I\'d suggest, put up a \'Pastikan Lorong Anda\' Signboard indicating the right lane goes up to the ramp, and the other 2 lanes head straight. Also make it a double line once you cross the last traffic light before the ramp to Jln Tan Sri Teh Ewe Lim overpass to avoid queue cutting. The area I\'m referring to is http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=penang+green+lane&ie=UTF8&ll=5.392702,100.303717&spn=0.013373,0.022659&t=h&z=16


Maklumat Tindakan
