东南亚首座 登最新地标 可开关式吊桥

(瓜拉登嘉宾楼1日讯)从2014年8月开始兴建,登嘉楼最新重要地标,号称东南亚和大马首座“可开关式吊桥(Drawbridge)”竣工,并且将于明早7时开始至6月17日开放试跑半个月,可供民众参观及通车。

这座全长638公尺的吊桥,耗资约2亿4800万令吉,拥有两座16层楼的桥塔,设有4座瞭望台及2座天空桥(sky bridge),是东海岸经济特区下所推行的瓜登城市中心计划(KTCC)项目之一。

吸引游客登内陆观光

登州旅游、文化及资讯工艺委员会主席阿里菲德拉曼表示,这座横跨瓜登河的可开关式吊桥,即将改变登州旅客过去多年来只专注于岛屿观光的趋势,随着吊桥的开放,它将吸引更多游客到来登州进行内陆观光活动 。

“我们也锁定来自吉兰丹及彭亨州的本地游客将踊跃到来瓜拉登嘉楼,以便参观这座吊桥。

“其实,这座大桥在尚未开放前,就已经吸引不少吉兰丹游客到来从远处观望它。”

新吊桥衔接瓜登北部及南部河口,启用后将缩短瓜登市区前往士布浪达吉的车程。 可开关式吊桥竣工,将开放试跑半个月 。他说,为了吸引更多国外游客来到登州进行内陆观光活动,当局已经与岛屿观光活动业者商讨,例如热浪岛的业者,以便为他们的顾客提供内陆观光的配套。

他说,外国游客对于登州岛屿观光景点相当熟悉,因为州政府过去对国外的宣传就是强调登州的岛屿观光,因此他们将致力与岛屿观光业者商讨如何宣传内陆观光产品,更相信业者将准备新配套,以带领游客到来参观新的吊桥。

另一方面,他披露,登州政府也与观光船艇业者协调,鼓励让业者妥善利用这座新吊桥作为新卖点,推出环绕登嘉楼河欣赏河畔与吊桥美景的服务。目前,当地观光船艇活动也越来越受欢迎。

他补充,州政府亦积极提升瓜拉登嘉楼河沿岸及海滩的灯光照明设施,如伊斯兰文明公园、苏丹马末大桥及杜容岛等范围,以便利观光船艇乘客欣赏当地夜间美景。

舒缓苏丹马慕大桥交通

登州基本设备、公共设施、基建及绿色工艺委员会马曼布爹则表示,这座衔接瓜登(士布浪达吉)及南部河口(瓜登市区)的吊桥启用后,将缩短瓜登市区前往士布浪达吉的车程。“日后民众若使用这座吊桥从市区前往苏丹马慕机场,只需10至20分钟,非常省时,又可以舒缓苏丹马慕大桥的交通。”

如果有大船要通行,吊桥中央部分就会打开让路给大船川行,再恢复供车辆通行,整个过程需约20分钟。可开关式吊桥不但给予民众很大的方便,也成为登州另一个具有特色的地标,吸引游客前往参观及拍照打卡。2座位于14楼的天空桥将被打造成为餐厅及展览厅,游客可以一边享用道地美食及进行参观、饱览美景。

◎可开关式吊桥(Drawbridge)说明:

●6月2日上午至17日开放试跑半个月。

●吊桥中央部份会打开,让路给大船川行,再恢复供车辆通行。

●全长638公尺。

SE Asia’s first drawbridge to be latest crowd-puller for Terengganu

KUALA TERENGGANU, June 1 — Terengganu’s latest icon — the drawbridge linking Kuala Terengganu to Kuala Nerus — is expected to change the trend of tourist arrivals to the state which has so far concentrated in the islands.

State Tourism, Culture and Communications Committee chairman Ariffin Deraman said he was optimistic that the areas surrounding the bridge would become must-visit locations for tourists to feast their eyes the first drawbridge in Southeast Asia.

“We are also targeting many local visitors from Kelantan and Pahang to come to Kuala Terengganu to see the drawbridge. Even now, when the bridge has not yet been opened, many visitors from Kelantan come here just to look at it from afar,” he said in an exclusive interview with Bernama here.

The RM248 million-bridge spanning 638m which has two 16-storey towers is slated to be opened for trial for 15 days from Sunday (June 2) at 7 am.

Ariffin said his committee had also held discussions hotel operators and tourist agencies in Pulau Redang to provide various packages to bring visitors to the mainland.

“I’m confident they will be preparing packages to bring foreign tourists to the mainland to look at the drawbridge,” he said.

He said apart from that, the state was also working on enhancing the river cruise service in Sungai Terengganu to enable tourists to appreciate the beauty of the drawbridge.

“We have informed river cruise operators that the drawbridge will be the main attraction for their water transport service. Even now, the service has garnered an encouraging response.

“For example, the TTI River Cruise saw an increase in the number of passengers last year compared to the past two years. The same goes for the Payang Water Taxi service,” he added.

Meanwhile, Ariffin said the state government was working to improve the lighting in coastal areas and the Kuala Terengganu river such as at the Islamic Civilisation Park, the Sultan Mahmud Bridge and the area surrounding Pulau Duyung to allow those taking the river cruise to enjoy the view at night.
