GEORGE TOWN, FRI: 

THE PENANG state government may consider taking the Penang Outer Ring Road and monorail projects private if the federal government continues with its decision to defer both projects.

Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said he would get the relevant state agencies to furnish him with the necessary details before deciding.

He, however, said the state government's priority was to urge the federal government to pursue both projects.

"We hope the federal government will keep to its words ... after all, both projects have been promised to us much earlier.

"If at all it fails to implement both projects, then we may seriously consider taking them private," he told reporters after the executive committee members of the Penang Chinese Chamber of Commerce called on him yesterday.

The proposed RM2 billion monorail and RM1.5 billion PORR projects have been deferred under the mid-term review of the Ninth Malaysia Plan (9MP).
