If you look at the photo in the article the bridge support is made of thin wood and the support made of wood is under the sea water. Wood is weak and not recommended to be used as a structure support. Moreover it is under water and the water will further weaker the material.

I hope Singapore tourism board or authorities in charge work with travel agencies to identify potential hazardous tourist attraction overseas.
