why Sultan Kedah had to walk (jalan) for 2 km - post mortem

The Tai Chi masters are at work now following the serious congestion at Stadium Negeri Batu Kawan.

Complaints received (extracted from The Star, 3July):
- Batu Kawan residents only managed to return home at 4am.
- Ah Yen seafood Restaurant has no customers
- Wedding reception cancelled as bride & groom were stuck at Bukit Tambun toll

Quotes from the VIPs (extracted from The Star, 3July):
- Organizers should have made alternatives transport arrangement, Penang Traffic Management Committee chairman Datuk Dr Teng Hock Nan.
- Big events always jammed the road but nothing close to last saturday, Kampung Batu Kawan village development and security com-mittee chairman Aziz Wan Chik
- Many spectators left their car in the middle of the road, Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Seri Abdul Rashid Abdullah
- *speechless*, Penang police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Koh Hong Sun

Will the second Penang Bridge will solve the problem we're facing with existing bridge or will it cause another problem for the residents at Batu Kawan?
