CAVENAGH & ANDERSON BRIDGES (L0373SR)
Cavenagh Bridge, Singapore's oldest original bridge was constructed in 1869 to link the government offices and Post office in Empress Place with the Commercial offices in Raffles Place. It is named after Colonel (later Sir) William Orfeur Cavenagh, Governor of Singapore from 1861-67. The adjacent Anderson Bridge was opened to traffic in 1910 by its namesake, Sir John Anderson, Governor of the Straits Settlements 1904-11. Cavenagh Bridge was then closed to motorised traffic. The public notice prohibiting bullock carts, horses and heavy vehicles remains in-situ today.
