Wanting to experience both bridges, we arrived via this one and it is a real feat - so long, and a quieter and more impressive entrance than the other.

The first bridge (Penang Bridge E36) is a 13.5-kilometre but this one is longer and it was built to ease the traffic congestion on the island. Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah (E28) is the longest in S E Asia and spanning 24 km, it connects Bandar Cassia in Seberang Perai on mainland Peninsular Malaysia with Batu Maung on Penang Island. To popularize this bridge the Penang Government had reduced the toll charge from Rm8.50 to Rm7.00 to be in par with the older bridge but that did not boost up the usage. Our American friends wanted to try the second bridge on our way back from Ipoh and I had difficulty locating it on Waze. It could not get identified and I kept getting the old bridge. So the only way I could do was to be on a sharp lookout for signs on the Expressway as I knew the exit was some where at Batu Kawan. So when I located that we were supposed to EXIT 157, the rest was easy as there were visible signs to lead us home to the south west of Penang Island. It will be nice to have more early directional signs like the Penang Bridge so road users are aware that there are TWO bridges linking the island and there are options.

My first experience on the bridge was great. This drive enables me to by-pass some of the busy roads and industrial areas ie. Jawi, Butterworth, Perai etc. and leads me direct to the island. Loved every moment on the bridge.

Regardless if it cost slightly more.. regardless the double "S" curves.. It was such a pleasant 24km drive for me & family.. We were lucky enough it wasn't raining with cooling breeze and traffic was like mmuaahhh.. It was a pleasure cruising over water.... "what a wonderful world"
