another bridge linking the mainland to an island



the last time i saw a new bridge linking the mainland to an island was in 2007. that was when i saw the cable stayed bridge linking the mainland to pulau keppel, formerly known as pulau hantu. today, while exploring the area around the lower seletar reservoir, i saw a new bridge in the distance.

it turned out to be a road bridge that will link the mainland to pulau punggol. at the moment, there is also a temporary causeway that links the mainland to pulau punggol barat. construction work is also going on to have a causeway to link pulau punggol barat to pulau punggol timor.

on the left side of the bridge is a place called the jenal jetty. did not see anyone around but saw a number of cockerels in the backyard. further back, there are at least three walkways built over the water that led to some flimsy wooden sheds.

to the right of the bridge, you can see the planes on the seletar airfield.

eventually the road across the bridge to punggol island will be linked to the seletar expressway (sle) and the tampines expressway (tpe).
