Opened in 1981, the Benjamin Sheares Bridge is the longest bridge in Singapore, spanning 1.8 km, and the tallest, at 20 m. It is named after Dr Benjamin Henry Sheares, the 2nd president of the Republic. The bridge is part of the East Coast Parkway. The cost of construction was S$177 million. Built over reclaimed land, the bridge is made of pre-stressed concrete and links East Coast Parkway on the east coast to Marina Bay on the west coast. The Marina Bay Bridge across Marina Bay was officially opened on 24 April 2010.
There are two components to the new bridge – a six-lane vehicular connection and a six-metre wide curved pedestrian connection that embraces Marina Bay. The Helix, at 280m long, was chosen for the spiral-shaped pedestrian bridge while the Bayfront Bridge, spanning 303m, was picked for the parallel bridge for vehicles. MSP was involved in monitoring the movement of the Benjamin Sheares Bridge and later, the Bayfront Bridge.
