Merdeka Bridge Widen To 7-lane Highway

Friday, 5th August 1966

Work has begun on a $1.5 million project to widen the half-mile long Merdeka Bridge by about 40 feet to ease the growing traffic congestion along the bridge. Three more traffic lanes are to be added to the present four lanes on. The two "Merdeka Lions" were relocated to Stadium Walk near the entrance of Kallang Park.
