I can’t believe I actually wrote such mushy post last year. LOL, I just read back, and go…Omg, woman, did you really write that? Hehehehe. So, I don’t think I can write an even mushier post this year.
I think I better go cook myself some bak kut teh and yam rice to standby for dinner. In case my birthday boy is held up in another stupid, six hours, traffic jam like yesterday. Otherwise, we are going out for dinner, of course.
Stupid PLUS, someone should hang them upside down and ask for an explanation how an accident that happened at 4 pm can cause a six hours traffic jam eventhough the vehicle was removed by 6pm.
We went over to Butterworth last night and at 10.30 pm, cars were still queuing up to return to the island. Lucky, it was mere fun trip for us because my toddler enjoyed the night ride on the ferry so much. But I got muscle ache in my calf now because of the long, long walk up and down the rams and flights of stairs. It took us 2 long freaking hours somemore!
Penang Bridge jammed
BUTTERWORTH: An overturned car on the lane leading to the island on the Penang Bridge caused a bumper-to-bumper queue stretching 1km from the bridge toll plaza here.
The jam lasted more than six hours following the 4pm accident yesterday although the site of the accident was cleared within two hours.
To avoid the jam, many motorists opted for the ferry instead. But this caused another long queue at the Sultan Abdul Halim ferry terminal.
It was learnt that a Proton Waja driven by a man in his 30s was travelling from the island to the mainland when it hit the divider somewhere between the 2km and 3km mark of the bridge.
The car ended on the opposite lane causing a bottleneck there. It did not hit any vehicle.
The man escaped with minor injuries.
A check with the Penang Bridge Sdn Bhd (PPSB) hotline at 10pm yesterday revealed that the accident site was cleared by about 6pm.
However, at 10.30pm, the PPSB’s BridgeCam on the Internet showed heavy traffic heading for the Penang Bridge toll plaza.
When contacted at 10.30pm, a Sultan Abdul Halim ferry terminal official said the jam there had just cleared.
