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 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).

McConnell Dowell's scope of work included:

  • Design and construction of a new 710 m long, three-lane vehicle bridge.
  • A 400 m long balanced cantilever bridge 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.
