Segamat “Steel” Bridge, Segamat

The Segamat bridge which is made of steel is still in use today. The bridge was built by the British before WWII and then destroyed by the Allied Forces to slow down the Japanese Army from advancing down south. After the War, the bridge was repaired by the British and continued to be used today by the KTM train service. Remnants of a wall which was partially destroyed by bombs in WWII A short distance from the Segamat “Steel” bridge, one could view the remnants of a wall that was believed to be destroyed by bombs in WWII. It is also believed that the bombs came from an air strike by the Japanese Zero fighters. The partially destroyed wall could be seen at the back lane of one of the shop lots.
