Kedah



Langkawi Sky Bridge
Langkawi sky-bridge is suspended at 700 metres above sea level. This unique curved pedestrian bridge spans 125 metres across a spectacular chasm. The view from the bridge is simply breathtaking. You'd be able to view the Andaman Sea and Thailand’s Tarutao Island as well.

The 1.8m-wide bridge had two 3.6m-wide triangular platforms that provided a spectacular viewing-cum-resting area for visitors.

Unlike straight bridges where you can see from the starting point, the bridge has been curved to provide different perspectives over the land and sea. Convenient triangular platforms located along the curved bridge provide rest areas so you can sit and appreciate both the beauty of nature and an incredible feat of engineering. Langkawi sky-bridge is safe.

Considerable thought was invested to provide visitors with a psychological feeling of security. They include a double steel railing at upper body level as well as an enclosed wire mesh and timber parapet below.

Sarawak



Durin bridge, Sibu, Sarawak
Durin bridge is the last remaining gap of pan Borneo highway. with its completion, it also changed the life style of the day, when many have to wait for a ferry to take them across the river. hawker stalls became the resting point and attract customers for food and drink.

since the using of bridge, the day of the ferries were over. together were the stalls by the river bank.

however, on one side of the river, there still remain some hawkers who continue with their business. thanks to the many motorists who just drop by for a drink, or buy something. at the same time, enjoy a view of the bridge.

Sungai Prai Bridge
The Sungai Prai Bridge is a new 1.4 mile link across the Prai River in mainland Penang. This beautiful cable-stayed bridge forms Package 1B of the BORR (Butterworth Outer Ring Road) Project.

Construction of the Sungai Prai Bridge faced a problem when improperly poured concrete slab atop a pile cap at one of the two primary stay-support piers threatened to weaken the entire structure, and attempts to remove the granite-hard blocks with conventional demolition equipment was unsuccessful. In the end, a decision was made to remove the concrete with explosives.
