Singapore has so many great bridges that a vehicle bridge like this gets lost with other bridges more scenic and more historic. Still we crossed over and under and enjoyed the scenery, during the day and night.

This is a small arch bridge across the Singapore River at the western end of Boat Quay. The bridge itself isn't all that interesting, but the views of Boat Quay are amazing. Plus one for that.

Sunday 20th October and we took the wonderful Singapore River Cruise. The boat looks us along the various Quays, on the Singapore River, to the landmarks and points of interest. As we wound our way along we sailed under a number of bridges that spanned the River, including this one. Elgin Bridge is called Thih Tiau Kio, locally which means, iron suspension bridge. It measures 46 metres long and 25 metres in width. It is named after a former British Govener General of India, Lord Elgin. It transports vehicles and passengers across it on a daily basis. The roads leading up to it on either side and North and South Bridge roads. The Bridge is illuminated at night adding an other dimension to its appeal.

I liked the old iron bridge. It is like a flash back in history. It looks well maintained and is nice and white. It was pouring out when I went under it in the boat. It's nice for a city to maintain some of it's history.

This bridge has a bit of history and is worth at least looking at as it has a long history here in Singapore. The bridge was named after Lord Elgin, Governor-General of India (21 March 1862 - 20 November 1863) in 1862 when an iron bridge was built across the river, replacing an older wooden bridge. The current bridge was built in 1929.[ As this was the first bridge across the river, the two roads leading to it were named North Bridge Road and South Bridge Road accordingly. The original bridges here were wooden and in 1862 an iron bridge replaced the old one and names after the 8th Earl of Elgin. It was widened in 1870 and replaced in 1929 with a new wider concrete bridge with iron side rails and lamp posts. Elgin Bridge is known locally as thih tiau kio in Hokkien, meaning "iron suspension bridge".
