Who Benefits? The Case of the Suramadu Bridge Construction

Suramadu Bridge construction which connecting Suramadu and Bangkalan, expected to reduce development gap between two regions as well as to encourage the growth of economic activity in Bangkalan, Madura. Six years after Suramadu Bridge inaugurated, the various dynamics of the population, economic, and environment, has been going around the bridge. Nevertheless, it is still not known which region get the most benefit from this construction. This paper aims to determine the impact of Suramadu Bridge in Surabaya and Bangkalan. The approach used is system dynamic to see the impact of development along with the dynamics that occur around the bridge. The simulation results that the bridge is shifting the concentration of the growth of Surabaya to Bangkalan, characterized by an increased in-migration, increased investment, as well as changes in land use, although in value, Surabaya is far greater than Bangkalan. The dynamics change that occurred in the two areas must be followed by spatial planning, so that the big population and economic growth to suburban areas (Bangkalan) does not lead to the formation of the structure of urban sprawl on a regional scale.
