Out of the best efforts combined by Korean company Hyundai E&C and local consortium, Combined Group Contracting Company comes the longest bridge in the world found in Kuwait.
The project was won in 2013 and with the genius minds behind its construction, the ambitious and unusual construction of the bridge, Sheikh Jaber Causeway had exceeded timeline expectations. Now, it is already open to the public.
The project was funded with $2.6 billion. It has 1,100 foot-long span with an asymmetric cable-stayed construction that makes it the most visually recognizable part of the bridge.
Normally, it would take over an hour to drive around the bay but passing through the bridge could cut the travel time to only twenty (20) minutes. Whew! That’s fast!
The construction of the bridge is part of Kuwait’s massive development effort to link the city to a new port and the Subiyah mega-development.
