P-954 Waterfront Development Phase III Bahrain
P-954 Waterfront Development Phase III
Show Detail

Client Name: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Total Contract Value: $21,476,299   This project is the third phase of a waterfront development on a 70 acre leased site with an adjacent 17 acres of water area for the US NAVSUPPACT. The Project consists of a number of operational and utility support facilities. The project’s signature feature is the flyover bridge assembly, movement, and installation. This unique bridge movement and installation took place on the 31st of January 2014, where the 2850-ton bridge was lifted and transported to its permanent position through a main highway in Bahrain in only 8 hours using a Self-Propelled Modular Transport (SPMT) system to be the first bridge installation in the Middle East using such a system.   The flyover bridge is a tied arch cable suspension bridge 122.5m long, 16m wide and 27.5 m tall and is comprised of a roadway and pedestrian walkway. The 16 meter wide bridge deck is a concrete post-tensioned construction. The bridge weight for the movement was 2,690 metric tons. The entire bridge was constructed on a temporary platform offsite about 250 meters away from the abutments and was moved in place using a 96-axle – Self Propelled Modular Transport (SPMT) vehicle and two 105-ton box beams. The bridge spans a major 6-lane highway in Bahrain. The highway was closed for 9 hours for the bridge movement.   This will remain a landmark design-build project in the history of bridge construction in Middle East, and we are proud to have lent our experience with accelerated bridge construction techniques to help set a new standard of efficiency for transportation projects in Bahrain.
