The special mention of the project was emphasizing the importance of including preliminary piles in a contract for a major bridge crossing, locating the bridge as one of the most significant load tests ever conducted on a pile over water in South-East Asia.
An exciting feature of the bridge was the use of precast concrete permanent formwork units in the construction of two large pile caps located in the inter-tidal zone of the Santubong River and the use of similar units in the construction of the 4 m deep fender protection beams around each of these pile caps.
In 1986, Kingston was responsible for the delivery of the Santubong Bridge.
