Another day, another promise. Motorcyclists using the Penang Bridge will be exempted from paying toll charges if Barisan Nasional (BN) regains power in the state. Currently, motorcyclists using the Penang Second Bridge are required to pay RM1.70 per entry into the island, whereas those plying the first bridge from Perai need to fork out RM1.40 per entry.

According to The Sun, caretaker prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said the plan will be included in the Penang BN manifesto after holding discussions with state BN leaders.

“This will be included in the Penang BN manifesto after discussing with state BN leaders,” he said. He had also approved RM10.5 million allocation to construct a flyover for motorcyclists in Kampung Seronok, Sungai Ara.

The announcement is just one of a few motoring-related manifestos. BN’s Johor division also said it will put in place the widening of the North-South Expressway (NSE), increasing the number of lanes from four to six. This will ease congestion between Ayer Hitam and Johor Bahru. So, what do you think of this, guys?
