Penang is changing and mostly improving – a few photos – Part 1

In the next few years several large-scale infrastructure projects are supposed to be implemented.  These include Gurney Wharf, new motorways to relieve the congestion, a road tunnel near Gurney Drive to Butterworth, and light rail from Tanjung Bungah through George Town to the airport.  There are others, but these are the ones that interest me.

So Gurney area is about to change. In fact, it has already started. Just the other day.  So I have been taking a few photos so I can look back at them in the future. Here are some.
