One-way access road to a housing estate, bypassing a major traffic light intersection. If you look at the latest satellite image in Google Maps of this area, you can clearly see how this road relates to the adjoining roads.

Some newly completed apartment projects and their surrounding added/upgraded/removed roads. Note all the apartments here have plural words in their names.

Bayan Lepas Expressway (Elevated)

The elevated expressway to facilitate access to the Penang 2nd bridge has been completed and is open to traffic. The mainstream media calls this elevated road Bayan Lepas Expressway (BLE) so we'll go with that. (The road below at ground level is still Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway.)

Other than the two ends, there are no exit/entry ramps on this elevated road. If you start from one end of this expressway, you will finish at the other end 3.3km later, no choice.

Two previously separate parts of a road have finally linked up.

Also, note that this road has a kink further back and is not a straight line as currently depicted in MFM-Garmin 160411.

At Batu Maung, a major traffic junction is now a roundabout.

  • Some traffic lights have been removed; one traffic light junction is added.
  • Many old roads have been removed. Some were inaccurate anyway, in my opinion.
  • New roads are present, due to new property development in the area.
  • Other changes are due by Q3 of 2017, including a flyover over this roundabout, and the complete upgrade to dual carriageway of P10.
