OVERVIEW & BACKGROUND

This ‘Urban Public Spaces Below Highway’ is an initiative under the Butterworth Baharu programme to increase the amount of public spaces in the Penang Sentral harbour front area. This project aims to activate under utilised spaces located under the Butterworth Outer Ring Road.

The construction of the Butterworth Outer Ring Road (BORR) in 2006 was a traffic alleviation response to increasing traffic congestion on the PLUS highway. Despite its good intentions, the structure has permanently fractured the connection between Butterworth and its coastline.

Local residents are now disconnected from a valuable public asset as the structure obstructs safe and direct connectivity to the shore. With this permanent alteration that prioritises vehicular demand, there is now a need to address the loss of community spaces by introducing new ones.

By establishing attractive and functional open spaces for community gathering and healthy recreational use, the project aims to maximise the potential of these inefficiently used spaces and to improve liveability in Butterworth.

THE COMPETITION

Think City in collaboration with the Institute of Landscape Architects Malaysia (ILAM) is calling upon Malaysians from all walks of life to contribute fresh and exciting ideas into creating new public spaces for the community in Butterworth.

CHALLENGES

 

There are 3 islands that sits under the Butterworth Outer ring Road site. When Penang Sentral is fully operational, both foot and vehicular traffic is expected to increase.

There are several different communities in the area E.g. students from nearby schools, local residents, low-income groups, Rohingya refugees and Penang Sentral commuters.

OBJECTIVES

 

  1. To foster creative thinking and to seek creative ideas from Malaysians;

  2. To promote design ideas that addresses the needs of surrounding communities;

  3. To promote a strong sense of community, ownership and pride among Malaysians.

  4. To maximise potential of underutilised land.

  5. To reconnect the Butterworth shorefront area with the old town.
