Ithra Dubai’s One Za’abeel “The Link” bridge takes shape

The 7,100 tonne structure is set to be lifted 100m to connect the two towers following the completion of the final slide of the bridge at ground level

Ithra Dubai has confirmed a new milestone for its One Za’abeel development by completing the final slide of the bridge at ground level.

Known as “The Link”, the 7,100 tonne structure will be lifted 100m into the air to its final position connecting One Za’abeel’s two towers.

A cantilevered structure will be later added, giving the Link its final shape as a cantilevered sky concourse. Currently, The Link is positioned over The Happiness Bridge in Dubai’s Financial District and is undergoing its final technical preparations for its ascent later this year.

According to Ithra Dubai, The Link is the world’s largest cantilever and will have a panoramic sky concourse suspended perpendicularly to both towers A & B when complete.
