The Skybridge Gallery on the drawbridge tower of Terengganu will resume operating today, following nearly 100 days of closure, in line with the Guidelines of the Government.
Khalizan Mahmud, TI Properties Sdn Bhd Executive Director, said cleaners carried out disinfection in the drawbridge building to prepare for the return of tourists.
“We have reviewed in detail the area and capacity at the Skybridge Gallery and we decide that only 20 visitors are allowed to enter at one time.
“Meanwhile, the number of visitors allowed to enter the glass floor room, Sky Terrace, will be reduced from 10 people to just five,” he told.
Khalizan explained that visitors can visit Skybridge Gallery from 10 am to 5 pm every day during the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO), except on Fridays when operations are suspended from 12.30pm to 2.30pms, so Friday's prayer can be permitted.
“We are very careful in adhering with the standard operating procedures (SOPs) set by the National Security Council in the Tourism, Arts and Culture category with several mandatory SOPs, including age limit and numbering system to allow social distancing in the Skybridge Gallery.
“We will also perform the tourist handling procedures including screening body temperature, wearing face masks, as well as recording their personal details to facilitate any future reference,” he said.
The RM248 million drawbridge, which is the fourth bridge between Kuala Terengganu and Kuala Nerus, has been designed using the new hydraulic technology. Jambatan Sultan Mahmud, Jambatan Pulau Rusa and Jambatan Pulau Sekati are the other three bridges.
The entrance fees for the Skybridge Gallery remain at RM5 for Malaysian adults and it is free for children under the age of three while for non-citizens the rates are RM30 (adults) and RM15 (children).
