Pandaruan River

  (Redirected from Sungai Pandaruan)

The Pandaruan River (Malay: Sungai Pandaruan) is an international river on the island of Borneo. The river mouth is on Brunei Bay.

The Pandaruan Bridge which is also known as the Brunei-Malaysia Friendship Bridge, crosses the river linking Pandaruan in Sarawak, Malaysia, and Ujung Jalan in Temburong, Brunei. The opening of the bridge on 8 December 2013 enabled the vehicular ferry service, which was the only means for vehicles to cross the river, to be discontinued. Brunei and Malaysia have border crossing checkpoints at these locations.

GeographyEdit

The river forms part of the international border between Brunei and Malaysia. The river separates Limbang District, Sarawak, Malaysia and the Temburong District, an isolated exclave of Brunei.
