Recently, i got a chance to see the construction site of the Penang Second Bridge. Yes, the future alternative route which is about 24km long, can link both the state island and mainland together in a few years' time.
My counterparts and i travelled on boat from Batu Maung to Batu Kawan as part of our assignment. And although the authority in-charge, Jabatan Kedua Sdn Bhd said that the overall progress is a little behind schedule, they are confident that the RM3 billion bridge will be completed and up and running in a couple of years' time.
I got to see the piling work, and it is amazing how the base of what would be a huge bridge which commuters would use to travel within the state. Hearing the technicians explaining on how the piling works go, and how the bridge is constructed blow my mind away.
It reminded me about what it was stated in the Bible; that the wise man builds his house on the rocks, and the foolish man built his on sand. Foundation is that important, for it to be a solid structure and to avoid any untoward incident.
The story i wrote did not come out, but it was worth the experience to the a possible monument in the making, which can be told to the younger ones in the years to come.
I was there.
Love & Peace!~
