US-based firm Parsons announced that it was recently awarded a consultancy services contract for the improvement of the Shindagha Corridor in Dubai.

Parsons' services will include the preliminary concept study, preliminary design, final design, tender documentation, and construction supervision of the project. 

The Shindagha Corridor improvement project consists of a new bridge connecting Bur Dubai to Deira that will serve as a gateway to Dubai, as well as an evaluation of an existing tunnel under the waterway, nearly 10km of a new 12-lane expressway, multiple major interchanges, and various local roadway improvements throughout the historic district of Dubai.

Gary Adams, Parsons Middle East Africa (MEA) president, said: "Parsons looks forward to working on the Shindagha Corridor.

"It is Dubai's largest new road and bridge project, and the historical richness of the area only adds to its significance for our customer.

"The project is located in the heart of Dubai, a location that stands as a vibrant testimonial of Dubai's development into a global commercial hub," Adams added.
