Kulim to have LRT and airport by 2020


ALOR STAR: Kulim is poised to be a Smart City by 2020 complete with a Light
Rail Transit (LRT) system, and a regional airport.

The proposals for these mega projects are included in the draft Kulim Local
Plan, dubbed Kulim 2020, drawn up by the Town and Country Planning Department.

The proposed extension of the LRT from Bertam in North Seberang Prai to the
Kulim Hi-Tech Park in Kedah through Padang Serai would com-plement the
development of Pe-nang’s integrated transport network, said the development
planning unit 1 project manager Mohd Sharif Che Din.

A regional airport for light and medium aircraft had been proposed in Padang
Meha, he said.
