Greening On Lebuh Carnavon

George Town World Heritage Inc. (GTWHI), in partnership with Majlis Perbandaran Pulau Pinang (MPPP), Think City Sdn Bhd (TCSB) and SERI will be joining resources to implement a pilot greening project on Lebuh Carnavon, as part of the Cleaner Greener Penang initiative by the State Government.

  • The objective for the proposed pilot project is to alleviate "urban heat island" effect and improve connectivity for pedestrians and visitors alike.
  • Lebuh Carnavon was chosen as it is a main arterial road linking the historic city to the Jelutong Expressway and is a busy thoroughfare. The road divider (about one kilometre long) is wide enough in places to sustain a major "greening" intervention.
