EXCLUSIVE: Dubai awards new Creek bridge construction contract

10 May 2018
The local/Belgian Belhasa Six Construct wins contract to build the Infinity Bridge in the Shindagha area

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has awarded the local/Belgian Belhasa Six Construct the estimated AED390m ($106m) contract to build the Infinity Bridge crossing Dubai Creek.

Dubai wants the Infinity Bridge to be another architectural landmark for the emirate. It will be a box girder bridge with a decorative Infinity arch that offers minimal structural functionality. The bridge will have a total length of about 300 metres with 15 metres of clearance above the waters of the creek. It is expected that it will take 24 months to build.

The Infinity Bridge will be built near the mouth of the creek and is part of the larger Shindagha Corridor scheme that will overhaul the road network in Deira and Bur Dubai. Construction work started on the scheme in 2016 when Wade Adams was awarded the contract to overhaul Sana junction in the Karama area.

The US company Parsons is the consultant for the Shindagha Corridor scheme.
