Also called Jambatan Harapan Pulau Pinang, the spiral bridge was built by the Penang Island City Council at a cost of RM8.9million, which also includes the construction of the bridges for bicycles across Sungai Nibong Kecil and Sungai Ara. Construction began in July 2016. The bridge provides grade separation for cyclists away from vehicular traffic and provides cycling as an option for both recreation and travel.
