Alkaff Bridge is a pedestrian bridge in Singapore. It spans the Singapore River at Robertson Quay, located in the Singapore River planning area within the Central Area.The steel truss bridge is 55 metres in length and weighs about 230 tonnes. It is shaped like a tongkang (a light boat used commonly in the early days to carry goods along rivers), and is situated near the former Alkaff Quay. Alkaff Quay was named after a prominent Arabian family, the Alkaffs, who were among the wealthiest in Singapore during the early 20th century.The bridge was built in 1997, as part of the Urban Redevelopment Authority's (URA) plan to create a promenade along both banks of the Singapore River. The bridge, completed in 1999, is one of three footbridges — Alkaff Bridge, Robertson Bridge and Jiak Kim Bridge — built at Robertson Quay to improve the pedestrian connectivity between the two river banks. It was painted by internationally-acclaimed visual artist Pacita Abad.

  • It is a bridge on the Singapore River. There are several, but this bridge is for people only. It's a little bit of art because of the weird painting.

  • It is a humanitarian bridge to the Singapore River. It's not particularly a tourist attraction, but it can jump into your eyes when you're walking through colorful structures.

  • Very nice weather and sunny afternoon, having a walk at the Alkaff bridge. Beautiful colors bridge and cross over to Robertson Quay. Can see alot bistro, bar and restaurant. Have a beer there.
  • Cute footbridge leading to some nice cafés in the area. Painted by Pacita Abad, it's known as Singapore's first "bridge of art". It's astonishing how the paint has lasted though you do see some wear here and there.
  • An iconic and cute bridge. The multi color and pattern sure make it standout from all the other bridges. It's also instaworthy.
  • A remarkable bridge .. a good landmark if you become disorientated. Near all walking facilities. Including bars and restaurants.
  • A vibrant and multi- colored bridge. Iconic and cute ❤
