Helix Bridge - An Iconic Structure @ Marina Bay (Beside MBS: Marina Bay Sands)

Mathetically named as Helix, this newest kid in the Singapore's bridge-scape is situated right across the Marina reservoir and was officially declared open on 24 April 2010!

Should make it 25 April mah!
More auspicious!

Besides having a DNA-strain inspired design, the pedestrian-only bridge should have been named DNA Bridge due to the heavy focus the gahmen places on the biomedical industry.

It's highly probable that the design for the next bridge in Singapore will either be sperm or egg inspired (as an educational tool for encouraging Singaporeans to pump up the falling fertility rates).

Disregarding the debate on its name (which was already set in stone), this curved bridge serves a key role in connecting Marina Centre with the latest and hopefully last casino for Singapore, Marina Bay Sands.

With five viewing pods facing the panoramic city skyline, it shall be another platform for people to squeeze, sweat and view (and awwwww) the annual Singapore Fireworks Celebration!

It may look pretty out of place with most of the surrounding area undergoing construction but i bet you this will be an exciting area in time to come, when the Marina Bay Sands and Gardens by the Bay are completed.

And that is the right time to pay for a ride on the Singapore Flyer.
