It is amazing when staring this bridge that has exotic design. This bridge is very colorful in the night since it has many colorful lights. The Helix Bridge is one of the few, if any, bridges in the world to be named after its structure. The structure of this building is very complex and modern. This bridge is very safe to pass by cars or other vehicles. The concept derived initially from the desire to curve the plan of the bridge so that it sweeps down onto promenades either side. The concept is also combined with other idea based on the artistic modern concept. This ‘arc’ was also means of curving the pedestrian bridge away from an adjoining new vehicular bridge, also designed by the same team, while enabling the two to connect at a mid-point. This bridge is also safe and comfortable for the walking people, especially to have a walk. The brief required the Helix Bridge to be canopied for shade and shelter in the tropical climate. The notion of a tubular cross-section, which allowed the canopy and deck to be integrated, evolved from this requirement. It will be very shadowy for the people to take a walk in this bridge in the hot day.
