Description
Also on the Melaka River is the historical Chan Boon Cheng Bridge. It used to be a concrete structure until major renovations in1963 led to its current steel façade. In the early 20th century it linked the old quarters of Chinatown (then known as ‘Kampung Pantai’) on the west side of the riverbank to the new quarters of Chinatown (via Jalan Bunga Raya) on the east side.

The bridge has a gruesome past; during the Japanese occupation, Japanese soldiers placed the beheaded heads of their victims at the foot of the bridge as a not-so-gentle reminder for locals to toe the line.
