Henderson Waves

Spanning 274m across Henderson Road, the 36m-high and 8m-wide connects Mount Faber to Telok Blangah Hill wave-shaped Henderson Waves is Singapore's highest pedestrian bridge. Its distinctive wave-like structure comes from seven undulating curved "ribs" that alternately go above and below the bridge deck. Where these "ribs" rise over the deck, they form alcoves that provide shelter to visitors.

You be walking along the wooden pavement. The deck itself is made of yellow balau wood, an all-weather timber found in Southeast Asia. It is very windy and cool, offering a panoramic view of the surrounding, the shelter allows one to sit but not protect from the rain.
