Bunting Island Bridge is a new bridge that connects Bunting Island to mainland Yan, Kedah state, Malaysia. The bridge was built by the Malaysian Public Works Department (JKR) while the main contractor was Gamuda Berhad.
It was constructed between 2002 and 2005.
The bridge remains underused and has become a white elephant project. It has been widely criticised for the facts that it had served no purpose of linking to an unpopulated island which incurred a project cost of RM 120 million. 
Disenchantment of the locals remains unknown to the rest of the country.
It is a 2.3-kilometre-long (1.4 mi) × 13.0-metre-wide (42.7 ft) sea crossing consisting of a 1.8-kilometre-long (1.1 mi) bridge, a 0.1-kilometre-long (0.062 mi) causeway connecting Bunting Island to the bridge and a 0.4-kilometre-long (0.25 mi) causeway connecting mainland Kedah to the bridge. The bridge is an arch cable-stayed bridge with a main suspended span of 80 m in length and approach spans of precast concrete box beams with spans of 30 m in length. The causeways have fill embankments on piled foundations with rock armouring.
