Bridge is part of the third phase of the $1.37bn Shindagha Corridor project
Belhasa Six Construct (Besix) has won the infrastructure contract for the $107m Shindagha Bridge project. The new bridge is being developed under the third phase of the Shindagha Corridor project, following completion of the first two phases.
The bridge features an architectural arch shaped in the form of the mathematical symbol for infinity. The top of the infinity arch rises 42m and approximately 2,400 tonnes of steel will be used in its construction.
“It is truly an honour for us to be a part of the Shindagha Corridor project, as Shindagha is one of the oldest areas of Dubai and was home to Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum, ruler of Dubai from 1912-1958. The Shindagha Bridge will be the third major bridge crossing over the creek, that we have successfully built in the UAE, and we are very proud as a company to be a part of shaping the history of Dubai and the UAE,” said Pierre Sironval, MD of Six Construct.
In addition to the bridge, the phase three of the project includes the construction of the Corniche Street on Al Khaleej Street, improvements of the Falcon Junction and entry/exit points for Rashid Port. The project, which involves the construction of 10 surface junctions, will be completed in 2022.
