Arah means direction

Shouldn't say "The southern direction", could get away with "a southern direction" or "a southerly direction" but "to the south" is by far the most natural way of saying it.

Is there any reason why it should be "a red bridge in the southern direction" and not "the red bridge in a southern direction"?
