Tourism Development and Investment Company (TDIC) has announced the completion of Hodariyat Bridge – the cable-stay bridge, which links the Abu Dhabi city’s western coastline to the Hodariyat Island. The bridge was successfully completed six months ahead of schedule and It has now been handed over to Department of Transport in Abu Dhabi.
The 1.3 km-long bridge provides a 29 meters vertical clearance, and carries six lanes of traffic and two walk ways. The suspended bridge is the biggest of its kind in the UAE; its tall height means that ships are able to pass underneath it.
Nabil Al Kendi, Chief Development Officer at TDIC, said: “The Hodariyat Bridge will facilitate future development.”
