SIDE and back lanes in Penang are now in better shape, making pedestrians to feel safer and comfortable to use them; in fact, pedestrians opt to use them because of the ambiance.
The side lane located between Bank of China and HSBC Bank, which connects Beach Street to Weld Quay was transformed into an exciting pocket park.
The project, which was done by the Bank of China under their Corporate Responsibility Programme (CSR), was completed on Nov 17 last year. The project started on June 18 last year.
The side lane is equipped with a designated bicycle lane and the area will be lighted up at night to provide a safer passageway. Cyclists are encouraged to use the side lane.
