Muar Second Bridge (Malay: Jambatan Kedua Muar Jawi: جمبتن كدوا موار) is a famous landmark in Muar, Johor, Malaysia. It crosses the Muar River.
Between the 1990s to 2000s, a traffic congestion has occurred at the Sultan Ismail Bridge
since the official opening of the North-South Expressway Southern Route between Ayer Keroh and Pagoh
and the opening of the Tangkak
Interchange on 1 April 1989. To this end. On 1998, the federal government announced that the new second bridge would be built at Parit Bunga to eased congestion on the existing bridge.
The bridge was constructed between March 2001 and June 2003. It was built by Public Works Department of Malaysia (JKR) while the main contractor was Ranhill Bersekutu Sdn Bhd. The bridge was officially opened to traffic on 2004 alongside with the opening of the Muar Bypass.
Muar Second Bridge is a 632 metre semi-harp cable-stayed bridge with a 132 metre mid-span across Muar River like the Sunshine Skyway Bridge at Tampa Bay, Florida in the United States and Prai River Bridge in Penang. The bridge project also features a complex interchange at Parit Bunga, the first in the town.
