Feedback sought on proposed names for 2 iconic spaces at Marina Bay

The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) is seeking public feedback on the proposed names for two iconic spaces at Marina Bay.

The first is the landmark bridge which comprises two linkways for pedestrians and vehicles going to Marina Centre from the Bayfront area.

Designed to resemble the double helix structure of a DNA, the proposed names for the 280-metre pedestrian crossing are “The Double Helix” and “The DNA Bridge”.

The vehicular bridge is proposed to be called “Bayfront Bridge”, named after Bayfront Avenue – the future road which it will form part of.

The public can also give their suggestions on the proposed name for Singapore’s first Art Park, to be located at the northern end of the Bridge, next to the Marina Bay floating platform’s seating gallery.

The park, which will feature over 20 art works, is proposed to be called “ImagiNation Park”, to reflect the nation’s creativity and strive for the future.

The public can log on to from now till December 14 to share their views or suggest other names.

They can also get a sneak peek at the unique structure of the pedestrian bridge as the first helical segment was installed this month.

Plans to construct the new Bridge and Art Park was first announced in March 2006. URA said construction for both is on track and will be completed by end-2009.
