Medium Span Portal Frame Reinforced Concrete Bridges in Singapore

The City of Singapore (City status conferred by Royal Charter on September 22nd, 1951) is famous as an entreport for the export of rubber and tin. Besides this, Communist territoristic activities on the mainland have focused the attention of the world to this island in recent years. The island is of hilly terrain and has a number of streams running through the city; consequently many bridges of various types and spans are necessary to interlace the different parts for communication and transport. The construction of some of these bridges is different from usual practice, and this description may be of interest. T. Karmakar
