Jubilee Bridge by diyben

The Jubilee Bridge is a new pedestrian bridge being constructed to provide barrier-free access between the Merlion Park and the promenade in front of Esplanade-Theatre on the Bay, enhancing the continuous 3.5 kilometre waterfront loop around Marina Bay. The curved six metre wide, 220 metre long bridge will connect to the Esplanade Bridge in the middle, providing an extended viewing platform from which members of the public can view activities within the Bay and enjoy the panoramic sights of the Bay.

The construction of the bridge was announced in October 2014 and opened on March 29, 2015, a month earlier than planned, on the day of a state funeral procession for Singapore’s late founding father Lee Kuan Yew (who suggested the idea for the bridge construction).

The bridge is part of a trail that highlights Singapore’s history, and was built to celebrate Singapore’s Golden Jubilee in 2015.
