Remembering Lee Kuan Yew

Jubilee Bridge opens a month early for Mr Lee Kuan Yew's funeral procession

SINGAPORE - The Jubilee Bridge, which links up with the Esplanade Bridge at the centre, opened on Sunday, a month earlier than planned.

The bridge was opened to "help facilitate pedestrian movement during the state funeral procession", the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) said.

The Jubilee Bridge gives pedestrians barrier-free access between the Merlion Park and the promenade in front of the Esplanade.

It will be part of an 8km walking trail that highlights Singapore's history.
