Tun Salahuddin Toll Bridge Project
Contract Sum (MYR)
The 6-lane, dual-deck Tun Salahudin Bridge is an elegant, low-level bridge over the Sarawak River that affords an unrestricted view of the river in both directions.
This bridge is a multi-span, pre-stressed concrete, 339 metres long, 28 metres wide, with a 325-metre embankment. It has a 1.5-metre central median and a granolithic pedestrian lane on either side, each 1.5 metres wide.
This balanced cantilever bridge has a navigational clearance height of 9.07 metres above water and a navigational channel width of 65 metres. It is complete with architectural finishes and lightings. The entire scope of this undertaking entailed, in addition to the structure of the bridge, the construction of a four-lane road, a toll plaza, a toll plaza administration building and a roundabout to conclude the proposed span of works.
The project was successfully completed in September 2003, and the bridge was officiated by the Chief Minister of Sarawak, YAB Pehin Sri Dr. Haji Abdul Taib Mahmud, on 21 September 2003. The toll road was then gazetted and concession commenced in October 2003.
