Watch the latest from Construction Week's Everything You Need To Know About series on YouTube for the project's design and construction details

The 'infinity' sign-shaped Shindagha Bridge project, worth $107.3m (AED394m), was launched in Dubai earlier this week. 

HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai, unveiled the project's construction scheme. 

Part of the $1.37bn (AED5.1bn) Shindagha Corridor project, Shindagha Bridge's design has been based on an infinity sign. 

The bridge will be built 15.5m above the water level, and features an architectural arch topping 42m, shaped as an infinity sign (∞). Around 2,177 tonnes (2,400 tons) of steel will be used to build the bridge. 

Watch the video below – part of Construction Week's Everything You Need To Know About series on YouTube – for a summary of the project's design and development details.
