Bridge to link Malaysia and Indonesia

If found to be viable, Malaysia will be linked to Indonesia via a 37km bridge from Malacca to Dumai in Indonesia. Feasibility studies are underway. Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi urged the state to reconsider all aspects before deciding if a bridge should be built, as the cost involved was very high.

According to the Star, the Malacca-Dumai bridge was proposed in the mid-90s when Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad was the prime minister but the matter was put on hold following the Asian financial crisis in 1997.
