Helix Bridge - great view of the Singapore City skyline Nov 12, 2012
The Helix Bridge connects the reclaimed area of Marina City with Marina South near Raffles Avenue. It runs parallel to Bayfront Avenue and East Coast Parkway (ECP) Expressway.

This pedestrian bridge curves in an arc and has fantastic views of the skyline across Marina Bay. There are at least four landing areas where you can take photos of the view, so as not to bother other pedestrians walking along the bridge (which is wide enough to begin with).

A relaxing walk at night would begin at the Marina Bay Shopping Center, out into the Helix Bridge, take pictures at various stops before continuing on to the area of the Marina Bay Floating Stadium or back to where you originated.

Helix Bridge Mar 13, 2011
Linking Marina Bay to Marina Centre, the Helix Bridge, is set to become Singapore’s next landmark. Located beside the Benjamin Sheares Bridge, alongside the vehicular Bayfront Bridge, it was officially opened on 24 April 2010 and is the world’s first curved bridge.

This 280-metre pedestrian linkway – the longest in Singapore – features a world’s first ‘double-helix’ structure, designed by an international design consortium, comprising of Australian architects Cox Group and engineers Arup, together with Singapore-based Architects 61. Inspired by the yin and yang concept in Asian culture, the architecturally unique bridge is said to bring wealth, happiness and prosperity to Marina Bay.

The Helix Bridge is an engineering feat assembled with great precision. Its curved design is created by two opposing spiral steel members, held together by a series of connecting struts, symbolising “life and continuity”, “renewal”, “everlasting abundance” and “growth”, and resembles the structure of DNA.

One of the connecting bridges will link the three waterfront gardens at Marina South, Marina East and Marina Centre, to form a continuous public waterfront loop, while also linking the Double Helix Bridge to the Marina Bay Sands®, the Singapore Flyer and Gardens by the Bay.

You can catch a panoramic view of the Singapore skyline and watch events taking place at the Bay from one of its five viewing platforms sited at strategic locations. Fritted-glass and steel glass canopies providing shade and seats are also available at resting points. View paintings and drawings by youths along this crossing, or enhance your bridge crossing experience at night with lights that illuminate the steel structure to create different moods. For a memorable experience, be sure to visit this engineering marvel situated in the heart of the city.
