Dubai, United Arab Emirates – When the multi-million dollar Dubai Water Canal was created, it became necessary for bridges to be built on Shk Zayed Road to go over the Water Canal. Image shows the modern bridges that were constructed. A few decades ago there was only a desert road here, with sand on either side of the road. The bridge closer to the lens is the one for Dubai Metro. A train can be seen on the bridge. The one behind it carries all 8 lanes of road traffic between the cities of Dubai and Abu Dhabi. In the foreground is a very generous sidewalk for pedestrians. Image shot in the morning sunlight on clear day with blue skies.
