Indonesia to build country’s longest bridge linking Bintan and Batam

JAKARTA – Indonesia plans to build a 7 km bridge to connect two islands in the Malacca Strait, close to Singapore, as part of efforts to develop industry and tourism in the area, the government said on Thursday.

The bridge connecting Batam and Bintan islands will cost an estimated 4 trillion rupiah (S$386 million), the office of the cabinet secretary said in a statement on Thursday, and will be the longest in the Southeast Asian country.

The bridge aims to capitalise on the expansion of Singapore’s Changi Airport with the development of a new Terminal 5, which will have transport connections to Bintan.
