Sheik Zayed Road is a main artery to Dubai. The site is a complex knot where the motorway, Dubai Metro, and new rail bridge intersect. The new bridge is to span over the motorway and pass under the viaduct of the Dubai Metro.
Three options ranging in architectural character and price has been proposed: a cable stayed bridge, a bow string truss bridge, and a lateral truss bridge.
Work was completed at SYSTRA in Paris.
