JAMBATAN SULTAN ABDUL HALIM MU’ADZAM SHAH
Launched under the 9th Malaysian Plan, the Penang Second Bridge Project is not only providing an alternative route linking Penang Island and the Mainland, but also a catalyst for the socio-economic development and growth in the Northern Corridor Economic Region (NCER).
On 1 March 2014, after a little over five years in the making, the bridge was officially opened by YAB Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib bin Tun Abdul Razak, the Prime Minister of Malaysia and was aptly named Jambatan Sultan Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah. The bridge opened its door to the public at the stroke of 1:00am on 2 March 2014.
The bridge’s overall length is 24km with 16.9km is the length of the marine bridge over the water. It is linking Batu Kawan on the Mainland to Batu Maung on the island and it is currently the second longest bridge in Southeast Asia.
Jambatan Sultan Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah will not only provide an alternative route for the people to commute to Penang Island from the Mainland and vice versa. The bridge is also a catalyst for the socio economic growth and development in Penang, especially in the vicinity of Batu Kawan.
