(1/22/2012)

One of the more memorable sites you’ll encounter while touring the island of Bali is the majestic Tukad Bangkung Bridge (Jembatan Tukad Bangkung) located in the village of Plaga at Petang in Central Bali.

Inaugurated in late 2006, the Tukad Bangkung Bridge connects three regencies of Bali: Badung, Bangli and Buleleng and is claimed to be tallest bridge in Asia. An impressive cement structure by any standard, the bridge is 360 meters long, 9.6 meters wide and stands on pillars submerged to a depth of 41 meters to keep the superstructure firm and secure. Built using a balanced cantilever construction method, the bridge is guaranteed by its builders to last at least 100 years.

Built at a cost of Rp. 49 billion (US$5.4 million), the bridge was engineered to survive a Richter scale force 7 earthquake.

With the coming Galungan and Kuningan holidays in Bali, the bridge will become a popular tourist attraction visited by Balinees who include a visit to the bridge as a traditional part of their holiday celebration. In anticipation of the influx of local tourist, roadside shops and food stands inundate the area to earn a share of holiday spending.
