(3/19/2017)

The rebuilt “Yellow Bridge” (Jembatan Kuning) now connecting Nusa Ceningan and Nusa Lembongan in the Klungkung Regency off the east coast of Bali has already become something of a tourism icon by virtue of the addition of colorful night lighting that adorns the bridge.

The new bridge that was rebuilt to replace the old bridge that collapsed with the loss of 9 lives and 18 people injured in mid-December 2016, now measures 140-meters long and 1.8-meters wide.

Also known as the “Bridge of Love” (Jembatan Cinta), the bridge is attracting many foreign visitors who are flocking to the beach for photographic mementos.

The new bridge, constructed at a cost of Rp. 3.4 billion after the collapse of the old bridge, was officially consecrated in a Hindu ceremony on February 25, 2017.

The new and improved bridge is not only physically larger but stronger than its predecessor, capable of supporting 30 tons but with traffic restricted to pedestrians and motorcycles.

Nusa Penida covers an area of 363 square meters, representing 2/3 of the total land area of the Regency of Klungkung.

Nusa Penida is connected to the mainland of Bali by Roro ferry services from Padang Bai on a trip that lasts 30 minutes.

Other visitors to the area use the luxury cruise vessels that operate on a daily basis between the Port of Benoa and Nusa Penida/Nusa Lembongan.
