Double helix bridge in Marina Bay

The pedestrian bridge that is shaped like a double helix, will be opened officially today. We were planning to drop by this evening, as many events had been arranged for the opening - street performances, fireworks and of course, the unveiling of the official name. Maybe they should name it the DNA Bridge! =)

The bridge would connect various old and new landmarks around the area, including the Esplanade, The Float @ Marina Bay, the Singapore Flyer, Merlion Park, and all the new, yet-to-be-completed Marina Bay Sands and Gardens by the Bay.

The artist rendition of the bridge made it looked interesting and futuristic. Will definitely posts photos of how the "real" bridge looks like if and when we go there!

  1. Hi, nice looking. We have one that is similar in Glasgow, one problem though, it had to be closed for a month while they figured out why it was swaying.

  3. Hi Ryan - I went to the bridge over the weekend and will post photos I took there soon. Scotland is one of those places that I've always wanted to go!
