The upgrading of the spider bridge on Penang Road should make us reflect on how we act on the roads and how we treat fellow users.
The four-legged pedestrian overhead bridge at the junction of Jalan Penang, Jalan Burmah and Jalan Dr Lim Chwee Leong near Komtar has been in the news lately. MPPP has announced that massive upgrading will be done to this structure.
According to an MPPP officer, a private company has agreed to spend RM6.1mil to make the overhead bridge more pedestrian-friendly. The whole project will take about nine months.
There will be escalators and lifts to assist the disabled and elderly, and also those who are too weak or lazy to use the stairs. The side walls will be replaced with transparent panels to make the structure airier and brighter.
