Abdoun Bridge

Wadi Abdoun Bridge is a bridge in Amman, Jordan. The only cable-stayed bridge in the country, it crosses the Wadi Abdoun. The building of the bridge commenced on 14 December 2002 and it was opened on 14 December 2006. It is part of Amman's Beltway project and links North Amman to the 4th Circle and Zahran Street.

Design

The bridge has three Y-shaped towers to make two equal main spans of 134 meters in length. It is on an S-curve to aid in connecting to the adjoining roadways. The stays form a harp arrangement. The structural designer, Dar Al-Handasah, won a commendation award in 2007 from the Institution of Structural Engineers for this bridge.
