THE STATE OF NEGRI SEMBILAN

The Gemas Broken Bridge, Gemas

The bridge is located in the town of Gemas at the border between Negeri Sembilan and Johor. The bridge was blown up by the Australian troops before withdrawing down south to Batu Anam. By blowing up the bridge, the Australian troops hoped that this would slow down the advancement of the Imperial Japanese Army. One can see the bridge from the main road heading towards Johor from Gemas. The bridge does not appear to have been restored or repaired since it was destroyed more than 75 years ago.
