Dubai Does It Again!

Set to go this March, Dubai once again boasts itself of another wonderful construction, as if constructing magnificent towers and hotels were not enough.

If this would be constructed here in the Philippines, planning itself would be a big mess. Politicians, husbands (or wives, just in case there are) of politicians, and other personalities will be asking a big pay-off.

As if the Burg Dubai tower wasn't already taking the worldwide skyscraper race to new heights, this as-yet-unnamed span will be the world's largest arch bridge, with 2000 vehicles set to cross its 12 lanes—per hour, in each direction—when it's slated for completion in 2012. At 670 ft. tall, Dubai's next super structure will stand higher than the George Washington Bridge (604 ft.) but fall short of San Francisco's existing Golden Gate Bridge (746 ft.).
