JAMBATAN KOTA LAMA 

 

 

 

Jambatan Kota Lama Klang (selepas ini disebut) 'Jambatan Kota' merupakan jambatan dua tingkat yang pertama pernah didirikan di Persekutuan Tanah Melayu. Jambatan Kota dibina merentangi Sungai Klang dengan kos  pembinaan RM10 juta. Jambatan Kota Klang mula dibina dalam bulan Jun 1957 dan merupakan antara jambatan bersejarah di Malaysia kerana dibina sebelum tarikh kemerdekaan Tanah Melayu.

 

Bahagian atasnya dibina khas untuk laluan kenderaan berat seperti bas, lori dan kereta manakala di bahagian bawah ialah untuk basikal, beca dan orang berjalan kaki.

Jambatan Kota dirasmikan dalam tahun 1959, oleh DYMM Sultan Selangor, Sultan Hisamuddin Alam Shah Ibni Almarhum Sultan Alaiddin Sulaiman Shah.

 

Jambatan Kota menemukan semula Bandar Klang Utara dengan Klang Selatan yang terpisah seiak tahun 1941. Sebelum perang dunia kedua Jambatan Brickfield yang dibina dalam tahun 1907 merupakan penghubung utama penduduk kedua-dua bahagian sungai.

Perspektif Jambatan Kota (Pandangan dari Klang Utara)

Apabila Inggeris kembali pada tahun 1945, dua buah jambatan pelampung telah dibina. Bagaimanapun ia tidak boleh dilalui oleh kenderaan. Jambatan Kota telah memesatkan lagi pembangunan di bandar di Raja Klang dan juga Pelabuhan Klang.

Jambatan Kota is the first double-decked bridge in Malaysia. It is located in Klang, Selangor. The bridge is closed to traffic in the '90s due to high capacity. The new Jambatan Kota is located beside of the old bridge.

It is constructed between 1957 and 1960. The bridge was officially opened in 1961 by the late Sultan of Selangor, Almarhum Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah in conjunction with his coronation as the ninth Sultan of Selangor.

The bottom deck is a pedestrian walkway bridge while the top deck is a motorist bridge.

Stamps Classification: Malaysia Architecture Stamp; Malaysia Bridge Stamp

Malaysia Historical bridges will be the theme of Pos Malaysia's first batch of special collector stamps this year, to be issued on Thursday at all Post Malaysia offices nationwide.

Bridges are an important element in establishing communication links between towns and cities that are separated by difficult terrains or rivers. The role of bridges has been important in the economic and social development of Malaysia enabling transportation links in moving people and goods.

This series showcase these innovative bridges. This collection of historical structures that have played a major role in the growth of industries like tin mining, rubber and the overall economy of the nation are given due recognition.

Four historical bridges in Malaysia are featured in the stamp designs. The stamps, 50mm X 30mm in size is printed in sheets of 20 on SPM watermark, phosphor coated paper and are available in 30sen, 2 designs for 50sen and RM1.00 denomination. The city of Klang is divided by the Klang River and was linked by the Brickfield Bridge built in 1907. It was destroyed in 1941 during World War II, resulting in great difficulty in transportation and communication, especially for goods transported from Klang Port to other cities. In 1958 a double decker bridge was constructed, the first such bridge in Malaya, with a pedestrian walkway at the lower half. This double decker truss girder bridge was named the Kota Bridge (Jambatan Kota).

Date of Issue : 28-Feb-2008

Connaught Bridge Klang: Another historical bridge in Malaysia.

Connaught Bridge is one of the oldest bridge in Malaysia's Klang Valley region. It was built in 1948 by the British. The bridge is located in Jalan Dato' Mohd Sidin (Federal route ) near Connaught Bridge Power Station in Klang Selangor. During Connaught bridge, at one time, only one vehicle can cross the river. No lorry could pass it because it was limited to car, van and small vehicle only. While on the bridge, you will heard the sound of wood 'cracking'! Feel quite afraid! I have experienced crossing through the wooden bridge in 1993-1994. In 1995 the wooden bridge was replaced by a concrete box girder bridge.

Connaught Bridge Power Station

Connaught Bridge Power Station is one of the oldest power stations in Malaysia. The station has nonetheless kept in constant move with changing times. It is today one of the most efficiently run in the country, producing clean and reliable electricity in a quality-based, performance-driven environment benchmarked at globally competitive standards.

The Station has an installed generation capacity of 895 MW, the third largest of seven sister TNB power plants in the country. The power is produced through a combined-cycle block producing 315 MW, and 4 x GT13E1 open cycle gas turbines of 130 MW each.

As part of the Generation Division of the TNB Group of Malaysia, it shares and operates in support of the parent groupís targets and objectives. At the station level, this is achieved through its own strategic objectives and approach towards operational excellence.

The station operates in full compliance with all regulatory, safety and environmental requirements through the processes of Total Quality Management as applicable to a power station of excellence, guided by global aspirations.

The station goes about its business responsibly, taking into account strategic objectives, the interests of employees, the local community, the environment, shareholders and other stakeholders.

Connaught Bridge Power Station is committed to continually improving its processes to exceed customer and stakeholder expectation whilst complying with all statutory and regulatory requirements.

ARTICLE: PROTECT OUR OLD BRIDGE FROM CORROSION

Corrosion is a serious threat to the long function and integrity of a steel bridge. Structural steel will corrode if left unprotected or inadequately protected from the natural environment. This corrosion can take the form of general uniform thickness loss of concentrated pitting depending on exposure to the environment and the steel design detail.

Corrosion is a time-based process that generally takes several years to develop deterioration significant enough to cause concern. For this reason, corrosion is often considered an ownership or maintenance issue. While this may true in practical terms, corrosion is most appropriately addressed by specification of a proper corrosion protection system during the bridge design phase.

It has been shown that corrosion  played a significant role in the catastrophic collapse of bridges - Silver Bridge in 1967 and the Mianus Bridge in 1983. Therefore, corrosion is not an issue to be taken lightly by the bridge designer.

 It is important to place the issue of corrosion in perspective. Corrosion is a concern beyond steel bridges alone. Because reinforced concrete and prestressed concrete bridges also employ steel components in their design, this bridges are also susceptible to the effects of corrosion. It can be reasonably argued that although steel bridges tend to show the outward effects of corrosion more readily  than concrete structure, steel bridges are inherently easier to inspect and maintain than concrete bridges.
