Improvement of Interchange no.5
The project was realized to improve the very poor traffic conditions between Emirates hills, Jumeirah Lake towers, Dubai marina, Dubai American University and TECOM.
The principal challenge of this project was working in key residential complexes and with live traffic across one of the most demanding highways of the emirates. No disruption to traffic flow to and from Sheikh Zayed Road, Emirates Hills and the Al Sufooh Area was acceptable to the Roads and Transport Authority of Dubai. Immense planning and traffic management was carried out on this project.
The project consisted of nineteen (19) post tensioned long-span-multi-bridges that compromised:
- 3,000 metres length of bridge works
- 11,000 tons of steel
- 71,000 cubic metres of concrete
- 325,000 square metres of wearing course
The connections made with this project included access to and from Al Sufuh area, the Marina, Dubai Media City, Tecom, Emirates Road, Emirates Golf Club and Abu Dhabi.
Included in the scope of the project were several services including water, drainage, irrigation and sewerage.
- 13,500m of water pipeline
- Laying of 1200 diameter pipes
- 2,300m of irrigation pipeline
- 7,800m of drainage pipeline
- 2,000m of sewerage pipeline
