Brief Description of the Works
Sharq Crossing Programme comprises of three iconic bridges linked with an immersed tube which spans the area of Doha Bay in the State of Qatar. The constituent components of the Programme comprise:
West Bay Bridge:
West Bay Bridge is a two-deck tied arched structure incorporating a “longitudinal park” and cable car system, extending to an island of terraced levels providing recreational facilities and a marina. The longitudinal park extends via an elevated walkway, from the proposed Corniche Park to the bridge portal island offshore from the West Bay area.
The bridge touches land with a small pedestrian bridge and a shaded canopy for cable-car users while road traffic is maintained through an immersed tube tunnel.
Cultural City Bridge:
Cultural City Bridge comprises of a series of cable-stayed structures that skim across the bay in a pattern of descending scales creating a long bridge thus reducing the lengths of the submerged tunnel links.
Sharq Bridge is a tubular structure which spans the inlet adjacent to Doha’s new Hamad International Airport. While necessarily of low profile to accommodate air traffic, the bridge offers a novel, sleek conceptual form providing new visitors to Doha with their first stunning view of downtown Doha’s skyline.
- Submerged tunnel links:
Connecting each of the three bridges the immersed tube tunnels are designed to meet the international traffic management and safety requirements.
The immersed tube tunnel link between Sharq bridge and West Bay bridge consists of three lanes each way, and two lanes in each direction between West Bay bridge and Cultural City bridge.
