GEORGE TOWN: The Penang government has confirmed that the Penang Bridge International Marathon (PIBM) 2013 will be held on the first bridge instead of the second Penang Bridge.

 

State Tourism Development Committee chairman Law Heng Kiang said that the change of the location was due to the safety of the participants.

He said the state government has no other choice but to use the first bridge for the event as there were no report so far by any relevant authorities on the collapse of the second bridge's ramp last month.

"The safety of the participants must come first," he told a press conference today.

On June 6, the collapsed ramp had resulted in the death of a former policeman, Tajuddin Zainal Abidin,45, who was crushed to death in the incident in Batu Maung.

Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng had also in a press statement on Monday stated the state government will not authorise the annual marathon event slated on November to be held on the second bridge until the stop work order at the bridge was lifted.

Law also said the organiser will stick to its usual route as the past years as the second bridge is yet to be completed.

Meanwhile, he pointed out about 40,000 participants from 71 countries have signed up for the marathon event so far, adding the aim was to reach a target of 50,000 participants.

Law added that registrations are still open for all categories but he cautioned that spaces were limited.
