Tipped to be one of the Middle East’s most cosmopolitan corners the city of Kuwait is a marvel in the making for globetrotters of various origin. Developing at break-neck speed the oil rich nation is taking on the appearance and feel of a global city the likes of London or Paris with its newly commissioned ambitious construction projects streamlining the cityscape in to a highly functional and aesthetically ground breaking locale. Splurging billions of dollars on breathtaking new additions to the capital the city of Kuwait is set to catapult regional giants the likes of Doha and Dubai to become the cornerstone of Middle Eastern modernism and one larger than life undertaking that clearly demonstrates this desire is of course the Subiya Causeway project which is in its second phase of construction as of 2012. Due to be christened, this monumental causeway is a mega building project in the capital of Kuwait which is set to cost a whopping 700 million dollars.
As the first of two ocean bridges ( one connecting to Subiya with the other heading towards Doha) the Subiya Causeway is set to break new ground in the field of engineering and structural beauty with its sleek design and aesthetically pleasing arcs and arches. Designed according to the vision of Cowi A/S Engineering Consultants the causeway will measure in at 37.5 km upon completion, setting out from the Ghazali Street- Jamal Abdul Nasser Street intersection surpassing the Kuwait Bay before ending up on the Subiya Highway. The second phase of the project on the other hand sees another bridge 16km in length linking the city and the Kuwait Bay Area with Doha passing Umm Al Namil island to reach the Doha highway. Multifaceted and multipurpose in every sense of the term the construction initiative also includes the building of 2 man-made islands, each 30 hectares in size. These islets will of course contain essential services such as gas stations, maintenance offices, traffic emergency outlets and boating docks.
