Sky Bridge From Oceanus to Asia City Nears Completion Date
City Hall is in the process of erecting Sabah's latest feature, a sky bridge over Jalan Coastal, as part of its traffic and urban transport master plan for the central business district.
The bridge is set to connect Asia City and Oceanus Waterfront Mall with links to Centre Point Sabah and Warisan Square, creating a sense of convenience for pedestrians in the near future.
In line with the increase in tourist arrivals to Kota Kinabalu, the sky bridge will enhance the safety of the tourists and enable them to explore the local delicacies and souvenirs in Asia City before taking a short and safe walk to Oceanus Waterfront Mall.
The plan also includes the refurbishment of the road and drains along Jalan Tun Fuad Stephens, between the Centre Point Sabah and Wawasan Plaza roundabouts, as well as a traffic signal installed in place of the former roundabout.
Developed by Sunsea Development Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Waterfront Urban Development Sdn Bhd, these upgrading efforts commenced on 1 April 2017, and the bridge is tentatively due to be completed by 3 November 2017.
According to a spokesperson, the master plan was financed through a facilitation fund under the "Unit Kerjasama Awam Swastaâ€ in the Prime Minister's Department.
