The innovative & sculptural ‘double-helix’ structure for the pedestrian connection is a world’s first in
architectural & engineering bridge design.
The structural design comprises two spiraling steel members held together by connecting struts to form
a tubular structure, providing an inherent strength, ideal for the curved form. Its resemblance to
the structure of DNA - the basic building block of life - symbolises “life & continuity”, “renewal”,
“everlasting abundance” & “growth” reflecting our own aspirations for Marina Bay.
