Santiago Calatrava to build three bridges in Doha (Qatar)


Giving spectacular panoramic views of the Qatari capital, Santiago Calatrava’s Sharq Crossing will interconnect three bridges through underwater tunnels in Doha Bay. With a total length of 12 kilometers, the new set of arteries will take pressure off current roads in the area, given the high number of vehicles in circulation, while serving to link Hamad International Airport with the West Bay business district and the Katara cultural village. The design incorporates recreational facilities and a public park to be accessed via an elevated walkway and a funicular. Construction will begin in 2015 and should be finished in 2021, in time for the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup. Santiago Calatrava
