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