Life 180316 The Anderson Bridge was opened in 1910 from Victoria Concert Hall to Merlion Park, alleviating the traffic pressure at that time. The bridge is 70 meters long and 28 meters wide, named after Governor Anderson, who personally presided over the opening ceremony. In the middle of Anderson Bridge is a two-way lane, with sidewalks on both sides and ornate arch gates at both ends, which clearly shows the beginning and end of the bridge's journey. Anderson Bridge has become one of the most important bridges in Singapore.
Anderson Bridge has become a tourist attraction. For some, it has architectural and historic significance, providing access to the other side of the Singapore River, which lies below it, near the Fullerton Hotel. Founded in 1910 and named after Sir John Anderson, he was governor of the Strait Colony.
The Anderson Bridge near Merlion Park is situated on the Bank of the Singapore River. The white bridge and the splendid arch iron gates at both ends are very grand and unique in English style. Walking on the bridge, you can see the scenery on both sides of the Singapore River.
On the way to Merlion's Park, it is a more magnificent white iron bridge. It should also have many years of history. There are gorgeous arched iron doors at both ends, somewhat like the outer white bridge in Shanghai, but it is also a bridge, which is not worth passing by.
There are more than ten bridges on the Singapore River, of which Anderson Bridge, Gavenner Bridge and Elkins Bridge are the most famous ones. Located at the mouth of the Singapore River, Anderson Bridge is a magnificent steel bridge with ornate arch gates at both ends and Merlion Park at the edge of the bridge. Walking on the bridge has a kind feeling, because the steel arch structure is very similar to Haizhu Bridge.
