The Seri Saujana Bridge is a main bridge in Putrajaya, the Malaysian federal administrative capital. The bridge's design is unique cable-stayed arch bridge and it is similar to the Sydney Harbour Bridge in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Seri Saujana connects the Core Island (Precinct 4) to the Precinct 7 on Lebuh Sentosa highway and is strategically located at the main entrance into the Core Island from the south via the upgraded

Jkr-ft--.png road (now Putrajaya-Cyberjaya Expressway 29) and Kuala Lumpur-Putrajaya Expressway.

It is a new concept of the cable-stayed arch bridge. The bridge is controlled by the principal design parameters to reflect a transparent, elegant and futuristic slender looking structure, with an overall single span of 300m and total width of 32m. There are dual three lane carriageways. The deck level varies from RL 35.25m at abutment to RL 35m at centre of the bridge.

The builder of this bridge was Road Builder (M) Sdn Bhd at a cost of USD20 million. It was completed on 31 May 2003.
