The design of the bridge will follow the one crossing Sungai Tamparuli, making the district a place with two similar bridges.

Tamparuli state assemblyman Datuk Jahid Jahim said the bridge would not only benefit the local residents but would also boost development in Tuaran and Tamparuli.
"I am happy that finally the hopes of the people of these villages like Sungai Damit and Sawah, as well as the others will become a reality,” he told Bernama here.
