Suspension Bridge at Machincang Mountain Range at Langkawi 3/2010

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Suspension Bridge at Machincang Mountain Range at Langkawi: This unique steel bridge is located some hundreds of feet below the Top Station of Langkawi Cable Car. To get here, one needs to disembark at the Top Station from the cable car, and then head down on a clearly marked jungle trail for about 10 minutes.

The Langkawi Cable Car base station is located inside the Oriental Village compound in Teluk Burau (or Burau Bay).

Its construction commenced in August 2003 in a joint venture project undertaken by a local outfit that goes by the name of Alam Langkawi Sdn Bhd, Wyss Planning Consultants and an engineering design company called Hoeltschi & Schurter of Switzerland. The construction cost for the suspension bridge stood at RM2.45 million and with a total involvement of 100 personnel and the structure was completed by October 2004.

The statistics are rather staggering. The 125-metre curved pedestrian crossing stood at 687 metres above sea level and the overall steel structure is supported by a single pylon measuring at a height of 82 metres from the deep gully down below. The critical design element of this imposing bridge includes a total of eight load-balancing cables that distribute the overall weight on the single pylon.For further information..........[Suspension Bridge at Machincang Mountain Range at Langkawi] ..Ref :( )
