Look at the laundry list of mega projects for Penang, announced by the Prime Minister. All that expectations of a premier not particularly interested in tall, gleamy buildings gone. Pak Lah just shows that he merely has a different taste in mega projects than his predecessor.  But notice the word “hub” was used only seven times, I’m surprise there weren’t more.

The monorail though is a particularly delirious idea. It would seem, for any rapid transit project, Malaysians can’t stick to the tried and tested. From Maglevs in Johor Bahru or Advance Rapid Transit with PUTRA LRT in the Klang Valley. More expensive, less reliable, less expandable – but meh, they’re cooler.
