I spent a week in the UK in October 2016, before I left the supports were in place, on my return the bridge was up as it is now.
The Bridge has a 180’ high arch supporting a 690’ long and 20’ wide meandering pedestrian and cycling path below.
The bridge was inaugurated by Sheikh Nahyan Bin Mubarak, Minister of State for Tolerance on International Day of Tolerance 2017, which falls on November 16th each year.
View of the area, from Safa Park, after the canal was dug, but before it was filled with water. Construction started in 2014.

Since the opening of the footbridges across the canal, work has then started on the building of new accommodation, restaurants and hotels along the newly created water ways.
