Interesting that Indonesia is doing so to maximise transport connectivity to Bintan offered by Changi Terminal 5, currently under construction.

Just sharing.

Safe ride

The indonesia bridge cannot drive 4 wheels over , let alone pump shiok shiok.

 

Cost of bridges so ex, thy sure recoup back from tourists, one example - Nasi Padang dishes and you will know, so many to choose, one touch the plate considered makan liao  [lipsrsealed]

This is just another vanity project.

The population of Batam (1.2m) and Bintan (300k), combined, stands at about 1.5m. Out of this 1.5m population, how many of them have the need to commute between the two islands on a daily basis? When you narrow that down, out of these who commute daily between the two islands, how many of them already own a car or is financially well enough to own a car?

It's not many.

Indonesia is going to spend S$385m on this bridge just to benefit a small population of residents there, so to speak. I don't see that this is a wise expenditure when much of the country still live below the poverty line.

Dangerous ferry rides with poor safety record is a long time ailment in the area. Indonesia could have spend 30%-40% of that cost to help the ferry companies upgrade their vessels with grants etc while the rest be used more efficiently towards other economic development to benefit the local population.

And of course it's Indonesia.... a portion of that S$385m will find their way into "private accounts".

I agree that they should really improve their dangerous rides. Machiam got too many citizens liao so let some die never mind kind of attitude.

Articles often cited overcrowding as the cause of ferry mishaps. Seriously, how difficult to tell ppl its full house and ferry will drown, i mean sink. Guess it sounds better than say ferry was actually unsafe due to poor state of maintenance or no maintenance. Dead ppl cant talk or challenge.

Safe ride
Cheers

Penang bridge is 13.5 km.

It's probably a matter of political will.

If everyone can drive to Batam, the Causeway will see a drop in traffic. [laugh]

I don't think it is a vanity project la.

 

Can't even compete with our YOG, how to show off that you can spend 400m and get nothing in return.

So you thought the link bridge is from sgp to batam? LoL...

 

You all think whole world revolve around sgp. Maybe in the future sgp will want to build undersea mrt  link to batam. Maybe... [laugh]

 

I think they will still use the tanah merah ferry terminal as it's relatively close to the airport. Just need to add shuttle bus service to and from ferry terminal to airport terminal.
