World's Largest Arch Bridge in Dubai by 2012

Writing so much about this land and its man-made landscape, I am left with no newer words to describe the upcoming structures in Dubai. It’s always the ‘largest’ or the ‘tallest’ or the ‘most expensive’ kinds of terms only that can epitomize the construction coming up in this crazy place. The latest on the list is the World's largest Arch Bridge. The mile-long bridge will be 670 feet tall at its highest point! And it’s gonna encompass 12 lanes of traffic with a metro line running down the center. Estimated to be able to carry over 2,000 vehicles per hour in each direction, this bridge will be built at a whopping cost of 817 million dollars!

Pin It now!
