2nd Penang Bridge link Bt Kawan & Bt Maung
The 2nd Penang Bridge - Jambatan Sultan Abdul Halim Mu'adzam Shah is officially opened by the prime minister - Dato Seri Najib Razak on 1 March 2014. The bridge link Batu Kawan and the PLUS Highway in the mainland with Batu Maung in the island. It is a winding bridge with 24km in distance, the longest in Malaysia, another No.1 and another record.
For the 1st month free trail period, all motorists is given a free pass. The motorists need to pay the toll after 31st March. If the motorists enter the bridge from the PLUS Highway, he need to drive straight after he entered the bridge to the intergated toll system that allow him to pay the PLUS fee and the bridge ticket.
The speed limit on the bridge is set at 80km/hr. All motorists are not allowed to stop at the photogenic part for their photographs.
Drivng to Penang via Penang Bridge
The Penang Bridge has three lanes on its either way since 2010. The speed limit is 80km/h, when the traffic on the bridge is heavy, I feel lucky if I can keep moving at above 40km/h. The photo was taken on a Sunday morning when the bridge has less traffic, I drove more than 90km/h. I think it would be a great experience for a traveller to get a chance to travel along the bridge to enjoy the scenery. The bridge was built by Korean during 1980ies.
After driving for about 13 km, when you enter the island road, please strictly obey the speed limit, this is the place where traffic police start to give speeding summon.
