The Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure (MoEI) on Monday morning announced that maintenance work would be carried out for Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Bridge on Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road (E311) in the Emirate of Sharjah.
The longest suspended bridge that connects the two buildings of the new Mövenpick Resort Al Marjan Island. The suspended bridge is one of the stand-out features of the hotel that has a development value of Dhs543 million.
The Bridge has four escalators linking the four sides of the junction. It enables pedestrians to move freely between the four sides of the junction, thus avoiding any stop at traffic signals.
A spokesman for the fire brigade said the 260 metre bridge on the SS330 road near the town of Aulla, roughly midway between Genoa and Florence, in the northern tip of Tuscany, collapsed at 10:25am.
Mattar Mohammed Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of Roads and Transport Authority, RTA, announced that the construction progress on the bridges leading to the entrance of Deira Islands has reached 75 per cent. Works cover the construction of three bridges of six lanes in each direction linked with the bridge crossing over the Water Canal.
The Sharjah Urban Planning Council will inaugurate on Wednesday four pedestrian bridges on King Faisal Street, King Abdul Aziz Street, Al Ittihad Street and Al Nahda Road at a total cost of Dhs100 million.
At least eight others were injured, including the local head and his wife, the police said. Local media said Mayor José Luis Urióstegui, his wife and members of the press delegation are among those injured.
The bridge, which will open to the public on Sunday, will slash the distance between the capital, Dhaka, and Bangladesh’s second largest seaport, Mongla, by 100 kilometres.
They brought bulldozers and gas cutters and tore apart the structure before escaping with the booty over two days, Kumar said.
