From Abu Dhabi, UAE - Sheikh Zayed Bridge is one of four that links the mainland with Abu Dhabi island. Designed by Zaha Hadid's architectural practice the form had to be changed during construction as the design wasn't workable with the required forces that would be applied, and as a result the construction overran considerably.

The photograph from the construction phase was in early 2009 and the latter when it was finished late 2010. Sheikh Zayed Bridge 1.jpg Sheikh Zayed Bridge.jpg
