Anderson Bridge, SingaporeAnderson Bridge, Singapore (12 September, 2010)



Anderson Bridge (GPS: 1.28731, 103.85298) is a bridge for vehicles across mouth of the Singapore River. Named after Sir John Anderson, the Governor of the Straits Settlement from 1904 to 1911, it links the Civic District of Singapore with the Financial District. Anderson Bridge was built in 1910 to take some load off the older Cavenagh Bridge. It comprises three steel arches with supporting steel ribs and piers on each end.

Anderson Bridge allows to lanes of traffic as well as sidelanes for pedestrians. During the Japanese Occupation, severed heads of criminals were hung on Anderson Bridge as warning against anybody from breaking the law. With the continual increase in traffic volume, Anderson Bridge was eventually supported by the new Esplanade Bridge which was built in the 1990s.
