The Double Helix Bridge is a monument that boasts a unique and a sophisticated design. Its structure resembles that of the DNA; the double helix strand that exists within the heart of each cell. There is an inner meaning behind this; for the many struts that hold the opposing steel members together are a symbol of 4 aspects; ‘life and continuity’, ‘renewal’, ‘growth’ and ‘everlasting abundance’. The bridge stretches across 28-0 meters and makes the longest bridge in the island. Several great minds were behind the unique design of this bridge that included designers, architects and engineers from the Australian Cox Group and Singapore’s finest Lot. The Curved structure of the bridge is brought about by 2 opposing spiral steel rods that are held in place by a number of connecting struts.
The Bridge was officially inaugurated on the 24th of April 2010 and made the world’s first curved bridge. The Double Helix Bridge is more than a fabulous work of art; it is a location of utmost serenity and a walk down the bridge is an exquisite experience in itself.
