Sheikh Zayed Bridge

A collection, or strands of structures, gathered on the shore, are lifted and ‘propelled’ over the length of the channel. A sinusoidal waveform provides the structural silhouette shape across the channel. The mainland is the “launch pad” for the bridge structure emerging from the ground . The road decks are cantilevered on each side of the rising and falling spine structure. Steel arches rise and spring from concrete piers laid asymmetrically, in length, between the road decks. The main bridge arch structure rises to a height of 60m above water level with the road crowning at 20m above mean water level.(to find out more…)
