The Middle East subsidiary of Belgium’s Besix has been selected as the infrastructure contractor for the $295m Shindagha Bridge project.
Six Construct’s 295m Shindagha Bridge will cross the Dubai Creek and will carry six traffic lanes in each direction and a pedestrian crossing.
The design of the bridge is based on the mathematical symbol for "infinity" which overlaps the centre of the bridge.
The top of the infinity arch will be 42m above the water, while the bridge will be 15.5m above the creek.
The bridge is part of the $1.5bn Shindagha Corridor Project, which will eventually extend 13km into the streets of Dubai.
Pierre Sironval, Six Construct’s managing director, said: "The Shindagha Bridge will be the third major bridge crossing over the creek that we have built in the UAE, and we are very proud as a company to be a part of shaping the history of Dubai."
Approximately 2,400 tonnes of steel will be used in the construction of the bridge, which is due to be completed in 2022.
