Skybridge , Langkawi
this suspended bridge is built on top of the Machinchang mountain. Accessible from the Top Station, the bridge is suspended from a 82m high single pylon and hangs at about 100m above ground.
Payed RM5 to suffer for reaching sky bridge , there're haven't got a actual way to approach Sky Bridge and the new access is still under construction , It took 30 minute up and down hiking concrete stairs for approach Sky Bridge and return back to top station of cable car . Not suitable for senior citizen and pregnant women at the moment or at least the actual access is done . As a fat athlete like me was not a problem .
It swings out over the landscape to give visitors a unique spatial experience, and to bring them into otherwise unattainable locations, above virgin jungle with spectacular views.
the 125m-long bridge, which stands at an altitude of about 700m above sea level, supported by a single pylon in the middle, would have stainless steel main structures, a 10m-long glass walkway .
A curved bridge offers spectacularly changing perspective that reinvent themselves, as one proceeds along it.
the structure ranks among the world’s longest curve suspension bridge and constructing it was not an easy feat as the solutions had to factor the following critical elements; structural balancing from a single point (top of the pylon), optimal weight management and load distribution, pre-fabrication of bridge and on site installation .
The entire bridge, in all its elements had to be lifted to the top of the mountain by helicopter and was later assembled to its current position.
