Dubai at night: The New Garhoud Bridge

cs DN8A2144 large

Due to the  low capacity of the old Garhoud bridge – spanning over the Dubai Creek- a new bridge has been finalized in 2008. With construction costs of 415 million AED it has a total of 14 lanes, 7 in each direction and handles 16,000 vehicles per hour. The bridge is 520 meters (1,706 ft) long and 16 meters (52.5 ft) above the water.

The color light art work in the night makes is one of Dubai’s impressive monuments. It took me 2 years to find the time and opportunity to go there for a night shooting. Enjoy the shots.
