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.

Hi everybody - what an interesting forum !
Might be a good place to find a bridge expert wishing to relocate to the Middle East (?)
