Connecting Java to the island of Madura, the Suramadu Bridge is a well-used and famous cable-strung bridge spanning between the two localities. The main points of entry and exit on both ends are Surabaya in Java, and Banglakan on Madura. The bridge has the distinction of being the longest of its kind in the country, and it is also famed as the first bridge to cross the Madura Strait. It is able to accommodate two separate traffic lanes in each direction, for a total of four primary lanes, as well as offering an additional lane for emergencies and another lane for motorcycles. One fun fact is that the bridge made the news when it was featured in the introduction and episode two of the famous reality-TV adventure series The Amazing Race.
