Jambatan Harapan Spiral Bicycle Bridge 希望之桥 (GPS: 5.3281, 100.30627) is a bridge across the Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway in the Queensbay neighbourhood of Bayan Lepas. It is part of the Penang Island Coastal Cycling Route that is being built by the Penang State Government. It was opened by the Penang Chief Minister, the Right Honourable Chow Kon Yeow, in the presence of former Penang Chief Minister, Mayor of Penang Island Mr Yew Tung Seang, and Malaysian Finance Minister-designate Lim Guan Eng, on Sunday, 20 May, 2018. The bridge allows cyclists and pedestrian to cross the expressway which is 11 meters below. The spiral of the bridge has a gradient of 5°, which less than the gradient of Jalan Bukit Gambir.

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.
