Connecting Marina Central to Marina South in the Marina Bay area of Singapore lays the gorgeous Helix Bridge. Popularly known as "The Helix", it is a pedestrian bridge linking the city's existing CBD area with the newly developed Bayfront district. The stunning edifice shines dazzlingly at night by ribbons of LED lighting, turning it into a popular tourist attraction.
The design of this beautiful piece of architecture is built upon the double helix structure modelled on the structure of the DNA because of which it was also previously called "Double Helix Bridge". Made of a special duplex stainless steel, this 280-metre long bridge has the ability to support up to 16000 people at once. The magnificent bridge is about three storeys tall, with 2250 metre-long steel tubes which make up its structure.
Situated near the Benjamin Shares Bridge, the Helix forms a curve near the Youth Olympic Park, Gardens by the Bay, and the Bayfront Bridge and is encompassed by attractions like the Esplanade Theatre and the Singapore Flyer on one side, and the ArtScience Museum and the grand Marina Bay Sands Resort across the bridge.
