Second bridge running on schedule
SMOOTH PASSAGE: Penang island’s second link to the mainland will be open to traffic in September next year
By ADIE SURI ZULKEFLI | 18 June 2012 | Last updated at 10:00PM



The Second Penang Bridge will be 80 per cent complete by month end.

GEORGE TOWN: THE Second Penang Bridge, the most anticipated project by the federal government for the state, is on track for completion in September next year.

Construction of the 24km bridge that links Batu Maung on the island and Batu Kawan on the mainland will be 80 per cent complete by the end of this month.

The RM4.5 billion project, which commenced in November 2008, has reached another significant milestone with the installation of the first cable stays on Saturday, during a visit by Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

The cable-stay bridge is similar to the Penang Bridge, which was built in the mid 1980s.

The new bridge will require 144 cable stays for its eight pylons or four pair of peers at the mid-span, each standing at 97m from the sea level. Eight cable stays are attached to each pylon.

The media on a site visit at mid-span were informed that the mid-span piers were due for completion anytime now.

One will be able to walk across the bridge come April next year but motorists would have to wait until September.

The bridge is constructed by UEM Builders Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of the UEM Group Malaysia and China Harbour Engineering Company, a subsidiary of the China Construction & Communications Group.

Running a total 16.9km over water, the Second Penang Bridge is set to be the longest bridge in Southeast Asia.

It will be the longest bridge in the world with high damping rubber bearing, which provides an effective seismic isolation system.

The bridge is said to be “earthquake-proof” with the adoption of the seismic expansion joint system.

Builders plan to have second Penang bridge 90% ready by year-end

CONSTRUCTION on the second Penang link is surging ahead of schedule with 84.35% of the massive project completed.

Jambatan Kedua Sdn Bhd construction director Hamizol Ngah (pic) said as of Sept 20, work was 2.45% ahead of plan.

“We are two months ahead of schedule from the September 2013 deadline.

“We aim to have 90% of the bridge completed by end of the year,” he said in a briefing to state officials at the China Harbour Engineering Co Ltd (M) Sdn Bhd (CHEC) office in Batu Maung, Penang.



The centrepiece: The main span of the second bridge is near Penang island

Hamizol said if work continued as planned, the two ends of the bridge would converge at the main navigation span in early April next year.

The 24km bridge will then go down in the history books as the longest bridge in South-East Asia.

Hamizol added that the second bridge has a lifespan of 120 years and can
handle earthquakes up to 7.5 on the Richter scale with its High Damping Rubber Bearing system.

Penang Public Works, Utilities and Transportation Committee chairman Lim Hock Seng, who was present at the briefing, said two traffic dispersal projects on the island end of the bridge were expected to start next year.

“The Federal Government has approved RM262mil to upgrade the coastal road (Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway) from the entrance of the second bridge to the Penang Bridge.

“Aside from that, RM161mil has also been allocated to upgrade roads leading south to Teluk Kumbar from the Batu Maung interchange,” Hock Seng said.



Progressing well: Construction of the second Penang bridge is now 84.35% complete

He added that both projects were expected to be completed about a year after the second Penang bridge opens for traffic in September 2013.

“We expect about 30% of the first bridge’s traffic (70,000 vehicle per day) to move to the second bridge, so we think traffic will be manageable until the two upgrading projects are completed,” Hock Seng said.

On a related matter, Hock Seng said the state had been informed that CHEC, one of the contractors of the second bridge, was not involved in the building of the Harbin Yangmingtan Bridge that collapsed in China on Aug 24.

Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng had previously called for an immediate safety audit on the second Penang bridge following speculation that the China Communications and Construction Company Ltd, the parent company of CHEC, was the contractor of the collapsed bridge in the Heilongjiang province.
