The emblem of Singapore

Gazetted on 15 October 2019
Completed in 1869, Cavenagh Bridge is the oldest and only iron cable-stayed bridge in Singapore. It was named after Sir William O. Cavenagh, the last Governor of the Straits Settlement under the government of British India (1859-1867). Constructed by P & W MaeLellan in Glasgow, it was shipped to Singapore and assembled by the banks of the Singapore River. By the early 20th century, Anderson Bridge was built to ease the increasing traffic load at Cavenagh Bridge.

Cavenagh Bridge is one of three Singapore River bridges collectively gazetted as a National Monument.
