The Sheikh Zayed Bridge in Abu Dhabi
The Sheikh Zayed Bridge will be the third bridge to the island
on which Abu Dhabi is situated.
The highway bridge will have four lanes,
an emergency lane and a pedestrian walkway in each direction.
The bridge is about 68 metres in width and 842 metres in length,
with a central steel arch span of 234 metres.
The central pier alone contains enough concrete to cover a football pitch
to a height of five metres.
The steel arch cross-sections are up to 6 x 8 metres.
