KUALA TERENGGANU: The Pulau Sekati bridge connecting Kuala Terengganu and Pulau Sekati across the Terengganu River is now open to the public.
The 6km bridge linking Kampung Teluk Pasu to Losong through Pulau Sekati, will provide residents with an alternative route to the city centre, said Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Razif at a signing ceremony to hand over the project.
He said only a 3km stretch from Losong to Pulau Sekati was opened to the public.
“The other 3km stretch linking Jalan Banggul Tuan Muda to Jeram Tok Kong will open on June 19,” he said.
Also present were state secretary Datuk Wan Nawawi Wan Ismail and State Infrastructure, Public Utilities, Energy and Green Technology Committee chairman Rosli Othman.
The RM245mil project is expected to reduce congestion on the Sultan Mahmud Bridge and Manir Bridge. — Bernama
