I love bridges. I fondly remember holding my mother’s hand or her pocket as I slowly but surely climb those stone stairs of the overhead bridge. I remember how I was scared of crossing bridges for fear that they would fall because I saw cracks in between the stone slabs and big gaps in between two steps of the stairs. I had to cross an overhead bridge at least once every fortnight when I was little, as I had to visit my grandmother and aunt together with my mother.
The Helix, a new and modern bridge in my country, Singapore, is shown below.
A walk over The Helix is an absolute must-do if you visit Singapore. The bridge connects the ArtScience Museum area of Marina Bay Sands to the park area around The Float at Marina Bay (stadium on the water). The walk would lead on to Promenade MRT Station.
Of course, the walk could start from Promenade MRT Station, across The Helix bridge, and to Marina Bay Sands.
How does a bridge usually make you feel?
