Photographer's Note

The Helix (double helix bridge)- this remarkable piece of architecture is strategically placed around Marina Bay Sands, Gardens by the Bay, the Singapore Flyer and the Bayfront Bridge.

Throughout the bridge, four different inner spirals are utilized to create a shade for pedestrians walking across the bridge. Viewing platforms are also incorporated into the design to provide pedestrians with a way to enjoy and photograph their views from the Helix Bridge. (this photograph was taken from one of these platforms)

The is the first bridge in the world to feature the double helix design and cost of estimated 68 million S$. An advantage of such design is that less steel was used compared to box girders or cable bridges. This saves millions of dollars in construction costs. Construction started in 2007.
