Synthesis of the case study

The Alexandra Arch and the Forest Walk is made up of a 80-metre long pedestrian bridge over the Alexandra Road and a 1.6-kilometre long elevated walkway. The project provides an urban connection with Telok Blangah Hill Park, in order to enable barrier free public access to the treasury of natural heritage of the Southern Ridges in Singapore. It features a curved deck and an arch shaped like an opened leaf, connecting the Alexandra Road, Singapore and Hyderabad Road. The bridge represents both the tranquility of the forest with the dynamism of Singapore.
