KUCHING: The privatised Tanah Puteh bridge here, completed almost three years behind schedule owing to land disputes, will be the first in southern Sarawak where toll will be imposed. 

The six-lane bridge, the second across the Sarawak River, will significantly reduce the travelling time between Pending in City South and Petra Jaya in City North. 

The first bridge across the river is at Jalan Satok. There are two causeways across the river that flows through the city. 

The toll rates for the Tanah Puteh bridge have yet to be announced by the state go-vernment. 

Zalpoint Corporation, which owns the bridge, has been awarded a 33-year period to collect the toll. 

The other two privatised bridges where toll rates will be imposed are the Asean Bridge in northern Sarawak and Igan Bridge in Sibu.
