KUALA LUMPUR: Consortium Zenith BUCG Sdn Bhd (CZBUCG), the main contractor for the RM6.3 billion undersea tunnel project in Penang, will commence the construction on June 15, slightly later than its original schedule.
The construction of the mega project is expected to begin in the first quarter of this year.
CZBUCG chairman Datuk Zarul Ahmad Mohd Zulkifli said the consortium will first begin construction of the three highways, which form part of the project, before embarking on building the 7.2km undersea tunnel linking Penang island to the mainland.
