Client Resorts World at Sentosa
Contract Design and Build
Completion August 2009
Resorts World at Sentosa have developed an integrated resort which includes six hotels, casino and a Universal Theme Park on Sentosa Island. The world-class and pioneering resort project is set on 49 hectares and opened in the first quarter of 2010. They awarded McConnell Dowell a design and construction contract for a new vehicular bridge from Singapore to Sentosa Island. The bridge provides additional traffic capacity, easing the pressures on the highly compact and congested city of Singapore.
The bridge provides additional traffic capacity for the anticipated 15 million visitors to the new resort. The 710m long, three-lane bridge was built parallel to the current Sentosa bridge (four lanes).
Scope of Works
Design and construction of a new 710 m long, three-lane vehicle bridge.
The bridge is a 400 m long balanced cantilever structure and 310 m long causeway. A 50 m long pedestrian underpass and a 400 m long steel utilities bridge were also included in contract.
Relocation of three piers of an existing light-rail line bridge was required to make way for the new structure.
The bridge will provide additional traffic capacity for the anticipated 15 million visitors to the new Resorts World at Sentosa.
