Beautiful Cavanagh Bridge over the Singapore River
If you’ve followed my blog, you know that I love walking the bridges along the Singapore River. From the Esplanade to Clarke Quay and beyond, I find myself walking this route every time I visit Singapore. I’m not a fan of making this jaunt during the day. But at night, well, that’s different. Most of the bridges are lit by auxiliary lights that vary in color. Between these lights and the reflection of city lights on the water, an ordinary river by day becomes a magical stream at night.
The subject of this posting, the Cavanagh Bridge, a pedestrian suspension span crossing near the magnificent Fullerton Hotel, was built in the 19th Century and is a tribute to the Scottish company that designed and built it. The setting is spectacular, being accented by the tall modern skyscrapers in the background.
