The Penang Island City Council (MBPP) will install a zebra crossing near the Pengkalan Raja Tun Uda ferry terminal in Weld Quay where an overhead pedestrian bridge was damaged after a piling crane crashed into it on Wednesday.

MBPP mayor Datuk Yew Tung Seang said that on Thursday, adding that the MBPP is also mulling legal action against those responsible for damaging the overhead pedestrian bridge.

Meanwhile, George Town OCPD Asst Comm Soffian Santong said the driver of the trailer lorry, a man in his 30s, was arrested on Wednesday for reckless and dangerous driving under Section 42(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987.
