If you travel frequently between Kuantan and Segamat, we have some excellent news! The Bailey Bridge at Section 102 of Jalan Kuantan-Segamat has reopened for two-way traffic as of May 1st, 2024. This follows a brief closure for necessary repair works.

Key points for drivers:

  • Two-way traffic: The bridge is now open for vehicles traveling in both directions.
  • Weight limit: Important to note, the maximum permissible load is 20 tonnes. Heavier vehicles will need to use alternative routes.

Proceed with caution: Drive cautiously when crossing the bridge and follow all posted signage.

Public Works Department (JKR) officials advise:

  • Adherence to weight limit: This is crucial to prevent future damage to the bridge.
  • Following signage: Pay close attention to traffic directions for a smooth flow.

Bailey bridges are pre-fabricated structures known for their rapid assembly and temporary use. This particular bridge serves as a vital connection while a permanent bridge is being constructed at the location.

If your vehicle exceeds the 20-tonne weight limit, fret not! You can find alternative routes using online maps or GPS navigation applications.

The reopening of the Bailey Bridge is a welcome development for motorists traveling between Kuantan and Segamat. Remember to follow the weight restrictions and drive cautiously for a safe and pleasant journey.
