Sixth Crossing Project - Dubai Creek
This project involves construction of A 12-lane Sixth Crossing across Dubai Creek is to be built at a cost of Dh3 billion. The crossing will be the worlds longest arch bridge and will cover a distance of 1.6 kilometres, linking Al Jaddaf in Bur Dubai with a road separating The Lagoon and Dubai Festival City. It is understood that the crossing, in addition to road traffic, will also be used by the proposed Dubai Metro Green Line extension that will connect Creek Station with Academic City. The bridge, with a 205m-high, 607-metre long arch, will be able to carry more than 20,000 vehicles per hour in each direction. The Green Line of Dubai Metro will run across the centre of the upcoming bridge and a Metro and water transport station will also be constructed on the crossing. The bridge will help to serve developments such as Dubai Healthcare City, Sama Al Jaddaf and Culture Village on the Bur Dubai side, whereas in Deira it will serve Dubai Festival City, The Lagoons, International City and Dubai Design Centre. Client has invited consultants to submit proposals by mid-April 2017 for the design of this scheme. The winning consultant will prepare designs for a signature bridge and less expensive crossing with a more basic design.
