47pm accident at KM7.8 of the bridge island-bound, worsened evening rush-hour traffic. Angkasa-X executive chairman Sean Seah said they are building both the earth station and space technology centre concurrently so that they could produce Malaysian-designed and Malaysian-made satellites to be launched into space from next year onwards. The incident also closed off the left lane of the bridge for more than one hour. "Penang DAP will continue to get good results to defend the state as they have not stopped working since taking over the state in 2008,” he said during a press conference after paying a courtesy visit to Penang Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow in Komtar today. Although the wreckage at the bridge was cleared at about 7pm, traffic was still slow-moving. The entire project is fully funded by Angkasa-X and once completed, will be able to assemble its own satellites. Based on a video clip recorded by a passer-by, there were three vehicles involved in an accident but only one burst into flames. "It will be the fourth term so the challenges will be different from previous terms but I am confident in the state leadership under Chow as the DAP chairman to lead and defend the state,” he said.

Motorists heading to the island are advised to be aware of slow-moving traffic and possible debris on the road. He said the first constellation of satellites will be more remote sensing so they are expecting to launch about 24 satellites over the next two to four years. He said what is important for the party now is to continue to strengthen its position, especially in Penang, Selangor and Negri Sembilan. Article type: metered .
