Often regarded as the most complex bridge ever built, the 842 metres long and 64 metres high Sheikh Zayed Bridge is truly a sight to see. It spans the waters of the Maqta channel, and it is the fourth bridge connecting Abu Dhabi to the mainland. It was designed by Zaha Hadid, who was the first woman architect to win the Pritzker Architecture Prize winner.
The structure consists of three sand dune-shaped arches linked together by concrete blocks, with the largest arch rising 63 metres above the roadway. The road decks are suspended from the arches, creating a waveform having a fluid silhouette. The bridge has four lanes going each way, an emergency lane and a pedestrian pathway.
