The Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Hajah Saleha Bridge is set to be an iconic part of the capital's skyline.
Die Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Hajah Saleha-Brücke im Wert von 139 Millionen US-Dollars in Bandar Seri Begawan.
His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah, the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam officiated the opening of the 750-metre bridge, which links Mukim Lumapas with the capital 17.10.2017.
The landmark is the world’s second longest single-pylon cable-stayed bridge, built in a joint venture between local firm Swee Sdn Bhd and South Korea’s Daelim Industrial.
A laser show and fireworks display lit up the night sky as His Majesty announced the official name of the new landmark — the Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Hajah Saleha Bridge — named after his wife, the Raja Isteri of Brunei, who was also present at the unveiling.
The bridge, which dominates the skyline over Brunei’s historic water village, features two dual carriageways and two interchanges, as well as a 157-metre tower topped with a 8.7-metre diametre dome.
The flyover is expected to ease traffic congestion for commuters between Lumapas and Bandar Seri Begawan. More than 18,000 motorists commute daily from Mukim Lumapas and surrounding areas using the existing Jalan Bengkurong Masin and Jalan Tutong roads.
