Berdirinya Jembatan Suramadu merupakan tonggak sejarah baru dalam pembangunan konstruksi prasarana perhubungan di Indonesia. Jembatan antarpulau sepanjang 5.438 meter yang akan diresmikan besok (10/6) itu bukan hanya yang terpanjang di Indonesia, tetapi juga di Asia Tenggara.

Sebagai jembatan yang menghubungkan dua pulau, sesungguhnya Suramadu (Surabaya-Madura) merupakan jembatan kedua setelah rangkaian jembatan Barelang (Batam-Rempang-Galang) yang selesai dibangun tahun 1997. Enam jembatan dengan berbagai tipe yang menghubungkan tujuh pulau kecil di Provinsi Kepulauan Riau ini merupakan landmark keberhasilan dan kemandirian anak bangsa dalam membangun jembatan antarpulau.

Sebelum Suramadu dibangun, timbul keraguan, apakah mungkin membangun jembatan di daerah patahan dan gempa? Bagaimana dengan tiupan angin di laut Selat Madura yang terkenal kencang, apakah tidak akan memengaruhi konstruksi jembatan?

Penelitian pun akhirnya dilakukan secara mendalam selama 2003-2004. Penelitian yang lebih bersifat technical study dilakukan terhadap 12 item yang kebanyakan berupa parameter tanah.

Dari sisi seismic hazard analysis, misalnya, diperoleh kesimpulan, di sekitar lokasi jembatan tidak ditemukan suatu patahan aktif. Berdasarkan katalog gempa juga tidak ditemukan gempa dengan magnitude di atas 4 skala Richter sehingga kondisi di sekitar lokasi jembatan cukup stabil.

Kajian mendalam juga dilakukan terhadap kontur dasar laut, arus air laut, serta pengaruh pasang terhadap jembatan. Ternyata semuanya sangat memungkinkan untuk dibangun jembatan yang menghubungkan dua pulau. Adapun untuk angin, berdasarkan kajian, ternyata angin yang melintang kecepatannya sekitar 3,6 kilometer per jam sampai maksimal 65 kilometer per jam.
