English Oral Test
Fuh, terkelu lidah saya apabila nak hafal ayat bahasa Inggeris untuk English Oral Test esok. Jadi saya buat pilihan untuk menghafal pada lewat pagi sebab orang kata pagi – pagi ni senang nak ingat. Terbukti, memang senang nak ingat waktu pagi kerana suasananya tenang tiada bunyi melainkan bunyi piano yang saya putarkan di Youtube.
Selepas beberapa minit berfikir, saya memilih tajuk ‘History of Penang Bridge‘ sebab sejarah dia agak pendek. Kalau nak cerita tentang diri saya tiada siapa yang berminat nak dengar dan kadang – kadang merapu pulak.
Harap – harap esok masa bercakap depan kelas tak lupa dan salah sebut perkataan. Biasalah saya bukan selalu bercakap menggunakan Bahasa Inggeris, selalu taip dengan tulis ja. Heh~
Inilah skrip English Oral saya yang dicopy dari Wikipedia
Penang Bridge (Jambatan Pulau Pinang in Malay) is a dual carriageway toll bridge connects Gelugor on the island of Penang andSeberang Prai on the mainland of Malaysia on the Malay Peninsula. The bridge is also linked to the North-South Expressway in Prai and Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway in Penang. It was officially opened to traffic on September 14, 1985. The total length of the bridge is 13.5 km (8.4 mi), making it the longest bridge in Malaysia as and the fourth-longest in Southeast Asia. Penang Bridge Sdn Bhd (PBSB) is the concession holder which manages it. The bridge was designed by Penang resident, Professor Chin Fung Kee, a well known civil engineer.
Before 1985, transportation between the island and the mainland was solely dependent on the state-owned Penang Ferry Service that runs between Butterworth and George Town. Toll fees is only paid when heading to the island. There is no charge for leaving the island.
Currently, Penang Bridge handles 65,000 vehicles daily and has a capacity of handling 85,000 vehicles daily. It has been expanded from 4 lanes to 6 lanes to accommodate increasing traffic on the bridge. A proposal for second bridge, the Penang Second Bridge, has been approved by theMalaysian federal government and included as one of the Ninth Malaysia Plan national projects. Construction work of the new Penang Second Bridge began in November 2008, and the target completion date is year 2013.
Since 1985, Penang Bridge has been a tolled bridge. The first concession was a government body, the Malaysian Highway Authority (MHA). 20% discount on toll rate was initially given to the loyal and regular customer of the bridge since the operation of the bridge by MHA from 1985 to 1994. During the period, majority of regular commuters from the government agencies, manufacturers and transporters purchased the discount vouchers in bulk from MHA and used them at Penang Bridge Toll Plaza. Fees is charged one way, when enter the bridge from the mainland end towards Penang Island. There is no fees imposed for mainland-bound motorists coming from the island. Since 1994, toll collection has been undertaken by a private concession company, Penang Bridge Sdn Bhd.
