The Project consists of a temporary steel bridge crossing over the existing roundabout located at the junction of the E-Ring Road with Al Muntazah Street. Ramps leading to and from and the existing carriageway form a significant part of the works, and the total length of affected highway is approximately 1.2km. The function of the project is to alleviate traffic congestion at the roundabout.
The project includes an eight span temporary steel bridge with ramps either side of approximately 150m length, formed by retaining walls. The span lengths of the steel bridge vary from 25.2m to 34.5m. The intended construction of the bridge is plate girders with reinforced concrete deck slab, made up of 100mm thick precast concrete units and 150mm insitu reinforced concrete.
