Additionally, the design of this bridge is inspired by London’s Tower Bridge. It also has a 23-metre-wide single-carriageway that spans 638 metres over the mouth of Terengganu River. Drawbridge Terengganu has four 15-storey towers, with each set of two towers connected by a sky bridge.

The entire project cost RM248 million and was completed back in August 2019 and it shortens the traveling time between  Sultan Mahmud Airport as well as Universiti Malaysia Terengganu and Kuala Terengganu by about 15 minutes. When the sun sets, this bridge will be illuminated too!
