Volumes 1 to 3 now available after a considerable delay for public inspection, review and comment
WHAT IS THIS?
We have just received from a concerned NGO, who prefers to remain anonymous, a full set of copies of the three massive SRS volumes submitted for public scrutiny, reflection and comment under the title “Bayan Lepas Light Rail Transit project – Environmental Impact Assessment report”. We are grateful for this democratic collegial gesture and are most pleased to share it widely in Penang and beyond. These are important documents for citizen review and active participation, and need to be made widely and freely available to all. The URLs for the three volumes will be found immediately below.
In the meantime we invite information and details from expert local sources on how these and virtually all of the 2t (??) volumes of the SRS report to the State government have been sequestered were not being made available for full and open public review
