A bridge connecting Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan, both in Nusa Penida, Klungkung regency, Bali, is set to be inaugurated through a melaspas (consecration) ceremony on Feb. 25.

“[This bridge] will serve as a tourist attraction for those visiting the small island,” Klungkung Regent Nyoman Suwirta was quoted as saying by Antara news agency.

Also known as the Love Bridge, the 140-meter-long, 1.8-meter-wide bridge, which will be used only by pedestrians and motorcycle riders, will replace one that collapsed in October last year.

 

Project supervisor Siswanto said the bridge cost Rp 3.4 billion (US$255,600) to build and could sustain 30 tons in weight.

Built in 1995, the old bridge collapsed last year, claiming the lives of six adults and two children who were on their way home from a Nyepi Segara ceremony at Bakung Temple. Thirty-four others were injured.
