The arch Rempang-Galang Bridge
The Barelang Bridge (Jembatan Barelang) is a chain of 6 bridges of various types that connect the islands of Batam, Rempang, and Galang (Indonesia). “Barelang”also refers to the islands themselves. The smaller islands of Tonton, Nipah, and Setotok (considered parts of the Batam island group) connect Batam and Rempang. The entire Barelang region covers 715 km².
Some locals call the bridge Jembatan Habibie after Jusuf Habibie, who oversaw the project in construction, aiming to transform the Rempang and Galang islands into industrial sites (resembling present-day Batam). However, the bridge site has grown more into a tourist attraction rather than a transportation route.
The full stretch of all 6 bridges total to 2 kilometers. Travelling from the first bridge to the last is about 50 km takes about 50 minutes. Construction of the bridges started in 1992 and took names from fifteenth- to eighteenth-century rulers of the Riau Sultanate.
