INNOVATIVE STRUCTURE

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.
