It has been quite some time since I last participated in weekly photo challenge.
I am pleased to participate in this week’s photo challenge with this week’s theme “connected”.
Here are a couple of shots to answer this week’s photo challenge.
The Langkawi Sky Bridge is located at the peak of Mount Machinchang at 660 meter above sea level. It connects two mountain peaks.
And to reach the peak of Mount Machinchang, there is a cable car service or it is officially known as Langkawi SkyCab. It connects the Oriental Village in Teluk Burau at the base to the peak of Gunung Machinchang, which is also the location of the Langkawi Sky Bridge. The total length is 2.2 km (1.4 mi), with a journey time from the base to the top of around 15 minutes. It was officially opened in 2003.
The double decker skybridge connects the two towers on the 41st and 42nd floors, which is the highest 2-story bridge in the world. It is not attached to the main structure, but is instead designed to slide in and out of the towers to prevent it from breaking, as the towers sway several feet in towards and away from each other during high winds. It also provides some structural support to the towers in these occasions. The bridge is 170 m (558 ft) above the ground and 58 m (190 ft) long, weighing 750 tons.
Until the first Penang Bridge was opened on 14 September 1985 the only transportation mode that connected Penang Island to the main land of Peninsular Malaysia was the ferry service besides by airplane. The ferry service started operation in 1920 and it is still in operation until today which is considered the oldest ferry service in Malaysia.
The Seri Wawasan Bridge is one of the main bridges in Putrajaya, the Malaysian federal administrative capital. This futuristic cable-stayed bridge which has a sail ship appearance and spans the man-made Putrajaya Lake, connects Precinct 2 on the Core Island to the residential area of Precinct 8.
