1. Re: Penang hill

Because there were about 30 landslides up there during the storms of 4th/5th November, the track got covered in earth and boulders, they couldn’t get any heavy equipment up there to clear the track which had to be done with men and shovels, until the track was uncovered they could not see what damage had been done, they then had to order new rails from Germany and some other parts from China, and then they have to do extensive testing. Does this answer your question?

They are trying to get it open for New Years Eve but there is no guarantee that they will succeed.
