The effects of traffic congestion in Penang— Tan Chen Tat

Source: https://www.malaymail.com/news/what-you-think/2020/02/19/the-effects-of-traffic-congestion-tan-chen-tat/1839052

FEBRUARY 19 — You are probably familiar with the traffic congestion in Penang, crowded with cars, buses, lorries, and bikes. Such traffic woes affect our personal life, career, health and even safety.

Firstly, traffic congestion causes unpredictable delay that stresses us over when we are rushing for appointment, work, and catching a flight. As if that is not bad enough, traffic jam also takes away our precious time with our family, reducing our private time and so disrupting our work-life balance.

. . . (continues) :
Good news is that the Penang Transport Master Plan (PTMP) is coming! With LRT and new highway, traffic congestion will finally receive its long-awaited relief. A seamless and accessible transportation system is the key to higher standard of liveability.

WORLD STREETS LAUNCHES THE 2020 OPEN COLLABORATIVE EMERGENCY CLIMATE/SPACE/TIME/MOBILITY ACTION/PLAN

THE 2020 FIVE PERCENT CLIMATE CHALLENGE (update)

WORLD STREETS is betting its future on the coming immediate-term transition period led by certain ambitious, responsible cities, nations, organizations and citizens in different parts of the world to come together to break the downward pattern of ever-increasing climate stress — and before the challenge to plan and execute highly aggressive near-term initiatives aimed at sharply cutting greenhouse gas emissions from the mobility sector.

And doing all this while working with proven tools, policies and strategies that harness cost-effective, readily available, measures, technologies, operational and management competence.

And our job is to support them as best we can.

Three islands disappeared in the past year. Is climate change to blame?

Question: In the plans for those three artificial islands in Penang, does the strategic plan and proposal take into account rising sea levels, trends, etc. If so, I would like to see the details. If not, I'd like to see the reasons. Just asking.

Let us unite to create a Climate/Mobility Action/Plan for Penang in 2020

HELLO FRIENDS OF PTMP AND PENANG. WHAT ABOUT THIS?

What if we all stopped arguing and got together for a couple of months over the remainder of this year in a happy and creative three way partnership between government, the private sector and civil society -- to see what is it that we all should be directing our efforts and competence to today to improve access for all, reduce traffic congestion and the negative environmental and climate impacts of our present over-charged system. (Aren’t you bored with the bickering? Is it making anything better?)

* LET'S UNITE TO CREATE A CLIMATE/MOBILITY ACTION PLAN FOR PENANG 2019-2020

Have a look at a cautious first step at https://www.facebook.com/PenangClimateMobility/

And let us all know what you think.

PS. Ask any athlete what they do when they are losing. It’s simple, they catch their breath, calm their mind and change their game plan.

New Mobility Penang, June 2013. To be gradually developed into an open collaborative space in which we post and exchange information on specific ways & broader strategies for improving the quality of mobility services and public spaces for all in Penang.

WHY SPEND A BILLION DOLLARS IF A FIVE-MILLION DOLLAR SOLUTION IS BETTER OVERALL?

A LESSON FOR PENANG
The great weakness of the local political establishment to Penang’s transport planning and policy needs is that they have insufficient technical backgrounds and knowledge to solve the mobility problems the people of Penang . This was made clear by the final Halcrow report in 2013 and nothing has been done since to improve the situation.

There are other more effective approaches to dealing with these problems with a strategy of affordable policies, measures and tools capable of giving swift results and a fraction of the costs of the proposed massive infrastructure program, the PTMP.

Let’s have a look at the Canadian report “Rethinking Malahat Solutions: Or, Why Spend a Billion Dollars if a Five-Million Dollar Solution is Better Overall?” at www.vtpi.org/malahat.pdf

This report evaluates various options for reducing traffic problems on the Malahat Highway north of Victoria, British Columbia. It has many parallels with Penang and the PTMP.

The analysis indicates that a combination of bus service improvements, Transportation Demand Management (TDM) strategies and incremental roadway improvements is the most cost effective and beneficial option.

In addition to financial savings this solution provides additional benefits including reduced traveller stress, consumer savings and affordability, improved mobility options for non-drivers, reduced downstream traffic problems, energy conservation and emission reductions.

Current planning tends to undervalue many of these impacts. This report illustrates the benefits of more comprehensive and multimodal planning.

Remarkable footage! Will certainly get your hair standing. Credit to the videographer.

It depicts the harsh reality that is plaguing Penang, overlooking sustainable development. The unnatural destruction of natural forest, hills and waterways. Putting lives in danger from landslides. Roads that are merely hanging off cliffs, being used by heavy vehicles too. The presence of unnatural giant pillars for elevated roads. Increasing the carbon footprint!

We are killing Penang!

**BREAKING NEWS ON CLIMATE/CITIES/MOBILITY FRONT

WORLD STREETS LAUNCHES OPEN COLLABORATIVE CLIMATE/NEW MOBILITY ACTION PLAN FOR 2019-2020

Reference 1: https://worldstreets.wordpress.com/tag/climateactionplan/
Reference 2: https://www.facebook.com/NewMobilityAgenda/

INVITATION: Readers of World Streets and others are cordially invited to join early discussions and shaping of a proposed collaborative climate emergency initiative just getting underway, aiming to identify and demonstrate by concrete examples ways in which greenhouse gas emissions emanating from the mobility sector can be reduced by a whopping 5% in Year 1. And in Years 2, 3, 4... etc. (Learning by doing.)

WORLD STREETS is betting its future over the coming two-year transition period on the ability of certain ambitious responsible cities, nations, organizations and citizens in different parts of the world to come together to break the downward pattern of climate stress — and specifically plan and execute highly aggressive near-term initiatives aimed at sharply cutting greenhouse gas emissions from the mobility sector. And doing all this while working with tools, policies and strategies that harness proven, cost-effective, readily available, measures, technologies, operational and management competence. And our job is to support them as best we can.

NEAR TERM: The time horizons that are being cited for making major cuts in the environmental load are, in our view, irresponsible. We need near-term results, and for that we need a new pattern. There is no reason to wait any longer, and every reason to attack the challenge immediately. And we are here to support this mobility revolution. The idea is to be judged by the announced public targets and achieved results in the year immediately following the program startup date.

MORE WITH LESS: Here are a couple of acronyms that are central to these strategies — TDM, ICT, VKT, TSM, ITS, MaaS, HOV, LOV, LOS, PBS, . . . among a long list of others – that you are already familiar with and will see developed in the articles, pages and references that follow here. Ways in which to do more with less. And . . . / Better / Quicker / Cheaper. To get a better feeling for this, check out our TDM Primer at https://worldstreets.wordpress.com/tag/tdm-primer/.

ECOSYSTEM: For a well-prepared program, many sharp reductions can be achieved in a matter of months or a couple of years, as opposed to decades (or never). The great art lies in how we prepare them and then knit them all together . . . so as to effectively redefine the entire underlying mobility ecosystem. As our Dutch colleague Marco Te Brömmelstroet put it so well: “The power of a new mobility concept depends not on how well it solves a problem . . . but on how many problems it (partly) solves “. So the goal really is not so much in the details as to change the underlying ecosystem of values and choices.

World Streets will follow, support and report on this wave of new thinking and action as best we can. Team work! (STEAL THIS PROJECT)
