GEORGE TOWN: Jul 20, 2008 By ANDREA FILMER
The Federal Government's move to reinstate the RM40mil project to upgrade the Penang Hill funicular train service is a good first step, but the state is far from satisfied.
Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said although he welcomed the move, he would continue to press the Government to reinstate the other shelved projects.
"We do not want the Federal Government to get the impression that the state is satisfied.
"There are so many other projects that need attention and assistance from the Government and we will continue to press for the reinstatement of other shelved projects," Lim said after flagging off the Penang Hill Climb from Youth Park on Sunday.
Second Finance Minister Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop had announced on Saturday that the project to upgrade the funicular train service had been reinstated into the Ninth Malaysia Plan (9MP).
