The 780-day contract, for which DBB was the low bidder, involves the construction of a new interchange with at least 10 bridge structures, five of which will cross the highway.

Once complete, the interchange will serve Jumeirah Lake Towers (JLT), Jumeirah Islands and the southwestern end of Dubai Marina, all large-scale residential and commercial developments under construction in the area.

Four other firms participated in the most recent tender for interchange 5.5. De Leuw Cather International (DCI), part of the US’ Parsons International, is the consultant.
