Penang second Bridge

The Penang Second Bridgei s a new bridge under construction in Penang, Malaysia. It will connect Batu Kawan on the mainland Seberang Perai and Batu Maung on Penang Island.

 It will be the second bridge to link the island to the mainland after Penang Bridge. The total length of the RM 3 billion bridge is 24 km (15 mi) and will become the longest bridge in Malaysia and Southeast Asia. China Harbour Engineering Co Ltd (CHEC) expected to start work on the second Penang bridge in November 2008 for completion in 2013.

The first bridge linked straight into Gelugor to Seberang with 13.5km Penang Bridge, which opened to traffic in September 1985, brought welcome relief as it enabled traffic from the island to mainland.

But over the years, traffic has built up again, especially during to and back office hours. Also during the festival seasons when people from outstation coming back to Penang for holidays. The 1st Penang Bridge also has been expanded one more lane for car.

With the development of the second Penang Bridge, it will create more business opportunity and constructions and the Batu Kawan, Batu Maung throughout the coastal area on the south.


Penang is a 'very cool' state in Malaysia, adding this second bridge will make it more modern and 'cooler'. Nice! Keep up the good work, LGE!. :-)

Hopefully the traffic jam can be mitigated to a lesser pain after the opening of this second bridge, no more long wait inside my car again for the snail traffic to move an inch during traveling .....
