The bridge referred to by the road name was Thomson's Bridge, which spans the river where Singapore's first bridge, a wooden drawbridge, was built in 1822-3. Thomson's Bridge was replaced by the first Elgin Bridge in 1863. South Bridge Road, which runs south of this bridge into the area of Chinatown, was laid in 1833 by convict labour. It was one of Singapore's main thoroughfares in the early days, and remains a fairly busy thoroughfare today.
