GEORGE TOWN: A crane which toppled on the Penang Bridge early Thursday morning caused massive jams along the Jelutong Expressway and the Bayan Lepas coastal road heading towards the mainland.

A spokesman from Penang Bridge Sdn Bhd said the incident occurred at about 4am.

“The accident occurred at KM3.6 after the middle span. The boom of the crane fell into the sea and caused the crane to topple.

“The lanes heading towards the mainland are closed now and we’re currently using contra flow, which we’re using the lanes from the opposite direction.

“So now we have one lane heading towards the mainland and one lane heading to the island,” he said.
