Standing at the height of thirty-six metres above Henderson Road, the Henderson Waves Bridge is the highest pedestrian bridge of Singapore. With a length of 274 metres and a width of 8 metres, this stunning piece of architecture connects the lush Telok Blangah Hill Park with the sprawling Mount Faber Park. Take a walk along this engineering marvel to relish a panoramic view of Singapore skyline and the lush greenery enveloping the bridge. The Henderson Bridge is illuminated with bright, psychedelic lights till 2.00 AM, rendering a different charm altogether. It is also a popular spot for joggers and fitness enthusiasts.
The extraordinary feature that makes the splendid Henderson Waves Bridge stand out are its seven undulating curved ribs which form an artistic wave-like structure and seem to flow above and below the deck in the form of alternative crests and troughs. These decks, which weave through the steel curves, are made of the indigenous yellow balau timber, and not only do they enhance the appearance of the bridge but also double as shelters with seats made of timber within them. The best way of exploring the Henderson Bridge is through the Southern Ridges Walk which is the five-kilometre hiking trail through three alluring park - Mount Faber Park, Telok Blangah Hill Park and Kent Ridge Park.
