Its a long sometimes congested second connection to penang island. Toll is at RM 7.50. Great view of the island lights especially in the night.

This is the older Penang Bridge that takes you to the mainland. You can view both the bridges from the island with the Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah Bridge being newer and longer. The locals still use the older bridge.
