According to TheStar, the link bridge is a project by the Kampung Bharu Development Corporation (PKB) and it has undergone countless challenges for it to be officially open. This is due to the bridge having to cross an expressway whereby it has to be kept open. Really, this bridge is no easy task so guys, we need to be proud of it okay?
