Southern Ridges : Henderson Waves

Henderson Waves is the highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore which stands 36 metres above the ground. This structure connects Mount Faber Park to Telok Blanch Hill Park. The bridge is famous for its distinctive wavelike structure, curving and twisting along its entire 274-metre length.

The bridge is lit with LED lamps at night from 7pm to 2am daily,  giving the bridge an illuminative glow. Unfortunately for us, we went there in the morning, so no night shots for me! Which gives us a reason to come back! Yey!

The bridge is anchored by steel arches and deck that is made out of yellow balau wood, an all-weather timber found in South-East Asia. It reminds me of old houses in the Philippines. It reminds me of grandpa and an ancient house where I used to spend my childhood.
