If you want to go to Penang and not so sure whether the traffic flow is smooth or jam, maybe you might need to check the status at Penang Bridge Camera.
The 24-hour CCTV cameras are installed at 8 different locations along the laybys and main span. All these CCTV cameras are connected to the Penang Bridge Communication Centre to enhance their traffic monitoring surveillance service.
But if your internet connection is slow and not able to watch the live camera, Penang Bridge Sdn Bhd also provides still captured images and you can watch the bridge from the images taken. All snapshot were taken when each time you refresh your browser.
