My World Tuesday - The Helix Bridge


Last week, I introduced the Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort. You can see the hotel in the background. From where I am standing, it is the entrance of The Helix Bridge which you can see on the left of the photo. The bridge connected directly to the resort.

This is the world first double helix curved bridge. It is about 280 metre long and the whole bridge looked like a DNA double helix. The steel tubes form the minor and major helix that spiral in opposite directions. At night the bridge will be illuminated and will be very beautiful. I will come another day during the night and take more photos.




The bridge is not fully covered. So you need an umbrella if it rains. But the walk across the bridge takes only about 10 minutes. But most take longer as they try to admire the bridge and the surrounding scenery.



At the side of the bridge are several such balcony.

Lots of steel were used to make this bridge.






Please visit "That's my World" for photos of other parts of the world.
