Southeast Asia's first drawbridge - located in Terengganu - opened to a public trial run yesterday, 2 June

The state's latest icon links Kuala Terengganu to Kuala Nerus, reported Malay Mail.

Spanning a length of 638m, the drawbridge stands tall with its 16-storey towers

It cost RM248 million to be built.

The drawbridge is open to motorists for a trial run until 17 June

"Only vehicles are allowed during the trial, because we do not want traffic problems."
