Sheikh Zayed Bridge, UAE

waterproof system at Sheikh 

The Sheikh Zayed Bridge project is part of a plan to connect Abu Dhabi with highways and superhighways in the rest of the Arab Emirates.

Construction of a 912m long bridge linking Abu Dhabi with the mainland with a central span of 234m. The main bridge is a hybrid structure consisting of central steel asymmetric arch ribs supporting prestressed concrete box grinder decks.

At the two main channel piers, the decks are supported by inclined prestressed concrete supports, rising vertically from the pier pile caps.

In order to protect this highly important structure from the effects of corrosion the client specified the use of a high performance spray applied elastomeric waterproof system with proven use within the Middle East.

The main contractor selected to use the pmb spray applied polyurethane waterproofing system due to the extensive track record of performance in use throughout the middle east which included the approach bridges to Sheikh Zayed Bridge completed in 2005.
