Finally getting to the Helix bridge

Part 3 of my Christmas morning walk. Getting away from that funny looking lotus building, and moving onto a much more pleasant sight. The Helix bridge is a massive stainless steel structure spanning over the Singapore river, joins Marina Bay to this port. Foot traffic only.

Entering the Helix from the sands. This picture is not taken correctly. Composition is wrong!

I dun like how this picture turned out… but its the only 1 I have before stepping in.. The work area below could have been more covered by the bridge and the path onto the bridge should start at the bottom right, not the right bottom. I am very critical of my pictures. .. booooooo!ing my own work! how sloppy.

Enter the Dragon! Thats what it sorta looks like.

Ohmy ohmy… This is surely expensive workmanship! Very fine work indeed. At least, it did passed our 30min scrutiny.. 🙂

In the scheme of things, this is really fine workmanship.

Hey, it sways! … Just a little bit… warning, some of ya folks may feel queasy if ya stay around too long.. No worries, its well built and the slight flexing of the metal is designed for handling the load…. although, most people I know prefers rock solid bridge… Actually this bridge really looks solid, its just surprising that it flexes soem..

No space for a big field? Built it on the water!

There are a few balcony pods on the inside facing that offer a good view of the floating soccer field! I wonder just how many ticketless people with be standing on this bridge next time Man U comes around for a friendly. … Also wondering if the players get seasick…

This ship is so gonna run me over...

Seeing the bottom of the AirShip… does it feel like I am underwater and looking up at a passing ship? The open bridge and steel struts add to the effect of the submerged feeling.

Click on the picture to enlarge… you might even see the people at the edges… like I am looking up at them, sure they are looking down at me too…

Coming out at the other end… its a half hearted mini park … not worth mentioning.. BTW, its the youth olympic park… <yawn>

Thats it folks. We have come to the end of our journey. .. wow, seems like we covered lots of ground on foot in 4hrs… eh?
