Anderson Bridge

The Anderson Bridge is a truss road bridge in Singapore. It leads over the Singapore River and was opened in 1910.

The bridge is 70 m long and 23 m wide. It consists of three interconnected steel arches and carries two separate from each other from the central steel arch two-lane roadways. Left and right is ever a way for pedestrians.

The construction of the bridge was necessary because the old Cavenagh Bridge was no longer sufficient for the increasing traffic between the business and government district. Construction began in 1908, which opened on March 12, 1910 by Sir John Anderson, the then Governor of the Straits Settlements, after whom the bridge is named.

In 1997, the Esplanade Bridge was opened to further reduce traffic, but the Anderson Bridge retained its function as a road bridge. About two bridges leads 2008, the Marina Bay Street Circuit for the Singapore Grand Prix Formula 1
