Sabah - Labuan Bridge

Sabah-based political party Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) had established its own `think-tank' and top of its agenda is to push for the construction of a bridge linking Sabah mainland to the Federal Territory of Labuan.

Progressive Institute of Public Policy Analysis headed by Datuk Tham Nyip Shen said the bridge would be about eight kilometres from Klias in Sabah to Labuan Island, across the South China Sea.

SAPP president Datuk Yong Teck Lee said the party came up with the idea at the time the proposed second Johore-Singapore bridge encountered problem.

Yong, a former Sabah Chief Minister, said the party would present the proposal to the State Government for consideration.

My Say:

I hope I will still be around when the bridge is built.

i'm afraid this would never happen.. if both areas are highly developed regions and there are thousands of cars travel between them daily, connecting them with bridge might be feasible. Sorry to say, area around Menumbok / Klias is so small that it is not even qualify as a small town.

8km bridge? wow... that will be a multi-billion dollar project. since our government got so much $ to send someone 2 space, who knows? :-)
