SUSTAINABLE PENANG VIRTUAL LIBRARY

If we are to be useful in creating a strong action plan and wide civil society backing for fair and efficient mobility in virtual library hand book penangPenang, it is important that all concerned are aware of the work done on these issues over the last several decades, of which there has been quite a lot.  And in particular of course since the decision to take on the respected international transport consultancy, the Halcrow Group, to come up with a strategy for both the immediate future, and the longer term (stretching out to 2030).
Moreover it is important that this information be immediately and freely available to all who wish to consult in this open analytic process. To this end, we have taken the first steps to create a virtual library freely accessible by internet as follows.
And while there are already more than one hundred reports and working papers available here, you are invited to draw others to our attention so that we can with your help turn this into a valuable tool for all those concerned about creating a Sustainable Penang.
