The Guillemard Railway Bridge which stretches over the Kelantan River in Kursial, Tanah Merah was opened for railroad traffic in 1924. It  is the longest railway bridge in Malaysia. Constructed in 1920, the bridge was completed in July 1924.

The opening of the bridge is meant as a route for railway trains and other vehicles. It was officiated by HM Al-Sultan Ismail Ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Muhammad IV in 1925.

The name ‘Guillemard' is named after a British Governor (Governor of the Straits Settlements and High Commissioner of the Malay States) at that time which was ‘Sir Laurence Guillemard'.
