A 307ha man-made island will be created in the sea between Gurney Drive and Straits Quay in Tanjong Tokong under Phase Two of the Seri Tanjung Pinang reclamation project.

The island, part of a RM25bil project, will be linked to Straits Quay and Gurney Drive by two 400m-long bridges in the proposed development by Eastern & Oriental (E&O) Bhd.


E&O managing director Datuk Terry Tham said the island would feature a seafront promenade called Gurney Reach which will face Gurney Drive.
He said Gurney Reach, which will complement Gurney Drive, would have open air cafes, restaurants and either an aquarium or a museum.


Some 500 people, including affected fishermen and relevant government agencies, attended the dialogue where 30 panellists presented the project details.


Panellist Prof Dr Sharifah Mastura Syed Abdullah, the lead consultant for the Phase Two’s detailed environmental impact assessment (DEIA) study, said some 470 fishermen from Tanjung Tokong, Tanjung Bungah, Gurney Drive, Pantai Paramount and Bagan Jermal were expected to be impacted by the project due to the loss of fishing ground but assured that steps would be taken to solve the problems.



Mitigation measures could be compensation for the fishermen, identification of alternative fishing grounds or a research for new areas to fish.


Datuk Dr Nik Mohd Kamel Nik Hassan, the lead consultant for the project’s DEIA and hydraulic studies, said the fishermen could open a seafood restaurant for tourists to patronise.


Datuk Dr Leong Yueh Kwong, a former lecturer of ecology, botany and environment, raised concerns on adverse environmental impacts from the project.


“The first DEIA for Seri Tanjung Pinang Phase One said there would be no adverse environmental impacts but there have been consequences such as siltation at Gurney Drive. This Phase Two is twice the size of the first phase and out at sea,” he said.


Dr Nik Mohd Kamel rebutted by saying that the siltation at Gurney Drive was caused by the tsunami in 2004.


The DEIA report, incorporating comments from the dialogue, will be on public display for 45 days by Oct 1 at the National Library of Malaysia, DOE headquarters library, all state DOEs, state libraries, the Penang Municipal Council, police stations and other locations to be determined by the DOE.
