UEM Edgenta’s integrated approach in transportation asset management for the widening of the existing Penang Bridge’s low level viaduct features our expertise in project management and specialist skills in traffic management.
The existing bridge was operating over its capacity and became frequently congested. Thus, an expansion was critical to cater for the increasing traffic volume plying the bridge. UEM Edgenta assisted Penang Bridge Sdn Bhd in resolving the optimised solution for the renewal of the asset to cater for this needed level of service improvement. It included providing quality management system to ensure that the project was smoothly implemented by maintaining an adequate service level to the users.
To relieve congestion during the course of construction, we provided traffic management services to ensure smooth traffic flow at all times. Furthermore, Penang Bridge’s users were adequately guided and warned of any safety hazards along the construction area through our management of traffic flows and patrolling.
