Since bridges are meant to bridge a gap, it’s not every day that you find one that leads to nowhere.
Recently, a multi-million ringgit skybridge in Kota Kinabalu caught the attention of Sabahans and netizens as the bridge was supposed to connect to Asia City, Centre Point Shopping Mall and Api-Api Centre, but instead it leads to a dead end.
Skybridge 31.5juta Sabah.

Set to be opened to the public on 9 September, the 400m bridge that was built at the side of the mall is said to have no doors to the mall or staircases that lead downwards.
Thus, the only way to enter the mall is by crossing the street, which questions the construction of the bridge in the first place.
According to The Edge prop, the construction of the RM31.5 million bridge was put on hold due to the developer’s bankruptcy.
However, allocations were provided by the government to finish the construction, totalling RM64 million.
Although it leads to a dead end, some netizens have pointed out that the rest of the bridge is still functional.
