About the project
Sheikh Khalifa Bin Salman Causeway Highway involved the construction of a 404m marine bridge as part of a causeway linking Hidd to Manama with a length of 6.4 km consisting of 3 lanes going towards each direction and footpaths on either side.
All the bridge was fabricated in Cleveland Bridge & Engineering’s works in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, where it was assembled prior to being skidded onto a barge and shipped to Bahrain. The bridge was then hoisted into the final position using strand jacks. The bridge steelwork weighed in excess of 2500 tonne and is 121 meters long, 54 meters wide with an arch height of 26 meters.
The scope of work for CBEME was detail design, supply, fabrication, painting, deliver and erection of structural steel and in addition the design, supply and installation of wire strands hangars.
