Dubai Infinity Bridge – Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE)
- Dubai Roads and Transport Authority
We were selected by the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) to provide consultancy services for the improvement of the Al Shindagha Corridor in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE). The Al Shindagha Corridor Improvement is one of Dubai’s largest road and bridge projects, whose area’s historical richness adds to its significance. The Dubai Infinity Bridge project is in one of the major and busy districts of Dubai, a location that stands as a vibrant testimony of Dubai’s development into a global commercial hub.
The project primarily consisted of a new major structure crossing Dubai Creek and a roadway corridor connecting the new crossing to the Al Shindagha area. The Infinity Bridge is a 300m long and 55m wide visual focal point of the Al Shindagha Corridor in Dubai, UAE. The bridge boasts an iconic design based on the concept of infinity and replaced the Al Shindagha tunnel as the main carrier of traffic between the two sides of the Dubai Creek at the Bur Dubai and Deira areas. The bridge will connect to a new 12-lane and thirteen kilometers of expressway.
A Thoughtful Bridge Design
Apart from the new bridge design, the marine works also involved the detailed design of the vessel navigation channel and the pier protection structures. More specifically, the subtasks included the design of the vessel navigation channel under the new bridge; design of aids to navigation; design of the pier protection structures which will provide protection for the bridge piers and the steel infinity arch against collision or impact due to an errant waterborne vessel traveling in the Dubai Creek; design of scour protection; hydrodynamic numerical modeling studies including flushing study; and environmental impact assessment. Parsons has performed several value engineering exercises and achieved cost savings of more than US$95.2 million (AED350 million) in construction cost.
