Suramadu which stands for Surabaya-Madura Bridge indeed links the Surabaya, in the east of Java to Bangkalan, a city in the island of Madura. A consortium of Indonesian companies PT Adhi Karya and PT Waskita Karya and China Road and Bridge Corp. and China Harbor Engineering Co. Ltd built it, with total cost around US$ 445 million.
Surabaya is the capital of East Java and also Indonesia’s second largest city that is an industrial and populated city while Madura is densely inhabited and impoverished. Although Madura is part of East Java province, it has its own unique language, culture and customs. Its area approximately 5.168 km² and the economic relatively regressive. Hence, this three cable-stayed sections bridge was built, in line with the hope to accelerate development and also bring economic benefits for 3.6 million inhabitants of Madura Island.
