On the 3rd of December, Proposed Construction of Pulau Muara Besar Bridge, Road and Utilities (PMB Bridge) Project constructed by China Harbour Engineering Company Ltd. was awarded the ASEAN Outstanding Engineering Achievement Award For Year 2021 during the 39th Conference of the ASEAN Federation of Engineering Organisation (CAFEO 39).
The award showcases that the PMB Bridge Project is identified as one of the outstanding engineering achievements within ASEAN as it demonstrates outstanding engineering skills which have made a significant contribution to the engineering progress and the quality of life in the ASEAN region.
The PMB Bridge Project was completed in May 2018 and the bridge part is 2.68 kilometers long. Various innovative technologies were incorporated into the design and construction of the bridge, including the installation of the largest single-box single-chamber box girder structure in Asia, the installation of the wide box girder with small radius and large cross slope using a bending and folding launching gantry, and the installation of largest lifting and descending steel confferdam platform used in Brunei etc.
It is a dual-carriageway bridge that connects Pulau Muara Besar to the mainland at Kampong Serasa, with the objective of facilitating the development of petrochemical-related industry on the island that would contribute towards the local social and economic development of the nation.
The PMB Bridge Project is also certified with the Singapore Building and Construction Authority Green Mark Certification.
