I’m a big fan of seeing remarkable man-made structures all across the world, and that’s why I was totally thrilled to have stumbled upon Singapore’s Helix Bridge, a 280-metre long bridge designed to resemble the double helix structure of DNA. How awesome is that right?
Situated within 5-10 minutes walking distance of Marina Bay Sands, the bridge not only serves as an aesthetically pleasing architectural feat but also takes on the symbol of renewal for the Marina Bay area.
According to an informative plaque stationed at the entrance to the bridge, the Helix Bridge is the “world’s first curved bridge”.
From the outside the bridge looked like an intricate web design put together by the world’s most sophisticated spiders, or better yet, a steel-framed wormhole set to send passengers across space and time.
Doesn’t it look like something you’d see on a Star Trek episode set in the far future? This was 2015!
While taking a stroll across the bridge I stumbled upon several viewing platforms that provided exceptional views of the Marina Bay skyline.
I guess Marina Bay just looked incredible from any angle.
I also caught sight of a few workers fixing up bits and pieces of the bridge.
All in all, Singapore’s Helix Bridge surely is an engineering marvel, and I highly recommend taking a trip to see it for anyone interested in exploring innovative structural designs in Singapore.
