Every overhead pedestrian bridge has its own ID.

I am into Signs mood again. I am usually quite law abiding, so I usually use the overhead bridge to cross roads. One thing I realise though is that for every bridge, there's a Bridge No.



I am quite impressed with the Land Transport Authority. I assume that since I have seen signs like this on all the bridge I been through, they are all labeled! Makes it easier for people to report to them if the bridge needs maintenance. Less confusion about which road the bridge is at etc....

So.... does your city have lots of overhead bridges? Are they also clearly labeled?

Dear Keropok,

I believe for other countries especially in Europe, their bridges have NAMES, not numbers like dull Singapore. They have Ponte Vecchio, Bridge of this and that, St Mark's Bridge, etc.

Singapore is one of the few countries that use numbers for bridges....super super boring. No wonder creativity dies here...

I like how you two have complete opposite take on your city! I am not sure if they have number for maintenance purpose, but they do have names: Brooklyn Bridge, Williamsburg Bridge, Verrazano Bridge, Washington Bridge, etc. But talking about big numbers like this, our busses and some buildings have bid numbers on their roofs. I guess it makes it easier to guide help. There's also something with subway steps/stairs, where you can see numbers that will guide help. But nobody knows about it so,...

Great to know that we have a number to call in case the bridge needs some servicing.

Here, we have lots zebra crossings everywhere. :)

think no countries in the world gives name to overhead pedestrian crossing.

at least they give a number to each bridge to enable people to identify the bridge if something needs attention.

well, big bridges do have names. Cavenagh Bridge, etc... all have names ;-)

I don't think any of the bridges in KL has its own ID.There's only the plain boring adverts.No ID's.
