End Client:
Road Transport Authority (RTA) – Dubai

The Al Safouh tram system will service up to 200,000 commuters over a 15km tram route. The tram route was planned to cross the Dubai Marina Canal at two points adjacent to two existing bridges.

Tony Gee conducted a post tender review of the existing structures to examine the possibility of them carrying loads from new trams as well as current traffic and existing design loads. After a successful review, it was demonstrated that with localised strengthening, the structures could accommodate further loading.

Tony Gee has since been appointed to value engineer the final designs for the strengthening of two marina bridges that cross the Dubai Marina.
