Cable-stay bridge connecting western coastline of Abu Dhabi to Hodariyat Island completed
The Tourism Development and Investment Company (TDIC), the master developer of cultural, tourism and residential projects in the capital, has completed the construction of Hodariyat Bridge, six months ahead of scheduled date of completion. It is the largest cable-stay bridge in the UAE, linking the western coastline of Abu Dhabi to Hodariyat Island.
The bridge, stretching 1.3kms, has been handed over to the Department of Transport in Abu Dhabi. Offering 29 metre vertical clearance, it carries six lanes of traffic and two walkways.
The suspended bridge is the biggest of its kind in the UAE, with its height permitting ships to pass underneath. Nearly 650 people, with a total of five million man hours have been dedicated for the timely completion of the bridge. The work began in October 2009 and has been completed in March 2012.
