What’s inside Henderson Waves Singapore
- The undulating shape of a wave
Along its whole 274-meter length, it curves and twists. Steel arches support the structure, which is filled with curved ‘ribs’ made of Balau wood, a dense hardwood used in heavy construction that is only found in Southeast Asia.
- Walk on the bridge
The Southern Ridges Walk, a five-kilometer hiking track that passes through three important parks: Kent Ridge Park, Telok Blangah Hill Park, and Mount Faber Park, is the finest way to see the bridge.

- To cut down on waste, the modular panels were made with cutting-edge technology.
