Resorts World expects 15million people to visit Sentosa annually once the integrated resort there opens by March next year. Resorts World is picking up the tab for the construction of the $80 million, 710m-long bridge.

After completion, the traffic flow to Sentosa will be realigned. The bridge will service traffic heading into Sentosa while the existing Causeway Bridge will cater to outbound traffic and pedestrians. The three lanes are capable of handling some 6,000 vehicles per hour. Under the bridge, it carries utility pipes for power, telecommunications lines and fresh water.

Works on the bridge started in May 08. This construction is in addition to reclamation at Sentosa for the Integrated Resort, as well the massive Pasir Panjang extension project. The natural shores nearby include those on Sentosa and Labrador.
