Day Six: Penang Bridge ~ Connect & Tags

In the current theme of “Connect”, a simple entry of our famous icon and landmark of our Penang Bridge of 13.5 km or 8.4 miles, is submitted herewith. Now, we have a longer second bridge (24km or 15 miles long) named the Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah Bridge or Penang Second Bridge (Malay: Jambatan Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah or Jambatan Kedua Pulau Pinang) E28 which is slightly further away from this first bridge but lesser used by the commuters owing to the higher toll and location.

From Wikipedia:-

BRIDGE

A bridge is a structure built to span physical obstacles without closing the way underneath such as a body of water, valley, or road, for the purpose of providing passage over the obstacle. There are many different designs that each serve a particular purpose and apply to different situations. Designs of bridges vary depending on the function of the bridge, the nature of the terrain where the bridge is constructed and anchored, the material used to make it, and the funds available to build it.

Penang Bridge

The sun rose slowly over Penang Bridge

The Penang Bridge (Malay: Jambatan Pulau Pinang; Chinese: 槟威大桥; pinyin: Bīn-Wēi dà qiáo; Tamil: பினாங்கு பாலம்), route E36, is a 13.5-kilometre (8.4-mile) dual carriageway toll bridge and controlled-access highway in the state of Penang, Malaysia. The bridge connects Perai on the mainland side of the state with Gelugor on the island, crossing the Selatan Strait. The bridge was the first and, until 2014, the only road connection between the peninsula and the island. The bridge is the second-longest bridge in Malaysia and the fifth-longest in Southeast Asia by total length, with a length over water of 8.4 kilometres (5.2 miles).

The bridge was inaugurated on 14 September 1985. The current concession holder and maintainer of the bridge is PLUS Expressways. Penang Bridge Sdn Bhd was the concession holder before it was merged with the current concessionaire.

Day Six: Connect & Tags
In this age of social media, we hear the word connect often, don’t we? Connect with us on Facebook! Connect with me on LinkedIn! Given what today’s technologies can do, it feels like the world is getting smaller, and we’re more connected than ever before.

There are many ways to interpret this theme: from a gadget to a handshake, from a bridge to a gathering among friends. What’s yours?

Photo- not included

Today’s Tip: Don’t forget to tag your post! Tags group your related posts together, help to organize your site content, and tell readers what a post is about. Tags make it easier for others to find your latest posts in the Reader, too.

Tag this post appropriately. “Photography” is a sure bet, and “photo101” — our official course tag — is a great way to connect with other participants. Consider other tags, too: for the image above, I might also tag it with “bridge” and “San Francisco.”

However, don’t over-tag! Between five to fifteen tags per post (or a combination of tags and categories) is good practice.

Cheers,
Josh R. and the WordPress.com Team
