Penang Bridge Reviews
Penang Bridge Sep 02, 2009
This bridge connects Penang to the mainland of Malaysia. It is 13.5 km lenght, the longest bridge of the country and one of the longest in the world (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_bridges_by_length).
It opened in 1985.
I did not cross this bridge, but I saw it from Penang Hill and from the road and liked it !
Note that there is a toll to cross the bridge only to go to Penang ; it is free to leave the Island !
There is a new bridge under construction in Penang - Penang Second Bridge. The built started in 2008 and is supposed to be finished in 2012 as it has been postponed. It will become the longest bridge of Malaysia and Southern Asia, being 24km long.
