POB Launches @ Napier

The temporary Pedestrian Overhead Bridge is successfully up at Napier Road following 2 nights of beam launching. The segment over the carriageway bound for Orchard was first launched up on Tuesday morning. The second segment of steel was then launched earlier this morning over the westbound road. The temporary bus bay and shelter along the eastbound road is almost completed, and would open anytime soon.

M&E works to the temporary bridge would take place together with the construction of the bridge's staircase from now. The new temporary bridge could possibly be operational by year end, following which the existing bridge would be demolished. This is the second POB to be demolished along the line.

  1. These construction projects inevitably took a lot of work and money. All good construction projects do though. I just finished building my home, it looked a lot like this.
