GEORGE TOWN: Motorists, including motorcyclists, are not allowed to wait or stop at any side of the Sultan Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah Bridge to take photographs.
According to Jambatan Kedua Sdn Bhd communications deputy manager Azizi Azizan, action will be taken against those caught doing so.
“The bridge patrol unit and the police will be keeping watch at all times, and motorists are urged to heed their instructions,” he said.
Since the bridge was opened to the public at around 1am yesterday, numerous vehicles have been making illegal stops on the bridge to take photographs.
Some were seen stopping near the bridge’s midspan while others also stopped at the emergency lane.Motorists would only drive off whenever a traffic policeman appeared on the scene.
Meanwhile, a Mercedes-Benz became the first vehicle to be involved in an accident on the bridge, which occurred at around 2pm yesterday, though it was believed that no one was injured in the accident. It caused traffic congestion on the bridge from Batu Kawan heading to the island.
