Henderson Wave, Singapore
photo by Kok Leng Yeo

General

The bridge has a unique wave-form made up of seven undulating curved steel "ribs" that alternately rise over and under its deck. The curved "ribs" form alcoves that function as shelters with seats within and also to accommodate large number of people during public events.

Slats of yellow balau wood, an all-weather timber found in South-East Asia, are used in the decking. Look out for carvings on the slats marking the height you are at on various points along the bridge.

During the day, one can enjoy the habour views while standing on the 12-storey high bridge. Beyond the bridge, it provides one with a soothing mood while meandering through the forest walk and the earth trails. At night, the wave-forms will be lit with lights from 7pm to 2am daily, giving the bridge an illuminative glow, offering beautiful night scenic view of the city.
