    Work on the Second Penang bridge in Malaysia is expected to be completed by November 8 and it will open to the public several days later.

    The bridge spans 24 km, including 16.9 km over the sea, and will link Batu Kawan with Batu Maung. It is built to withstand earthquakes of up to 7.5 magnitude. Lights on the bridge will change color to coincide with Malaysia's major festivities.

    According to the Star Online, the commissioning of the bridge's power supply has been completed. All of the bridge's street lights were recently illuminated during a launch rehearsal.

    There will be two lanes for cars and one for motorcycles in each direction, with a speed limit of 80 kph.

    Two oyster shell shaped panoramic platforms in the middle of the bridge will allow tourists to park their cars and enjoy the view. A pedestrian crossing will also connect both platforms.

    The US$1.4 billion bridge will be the longest bridge ever built in Southeast Asia.
