The bridge is characterised by its architecture comprising two 200-metre high arched towers, which symbolise the new doors to the cities of Rabat and Salé. The deck is supported by two sets of 20 pairs of parallel multi-strand stay cables.
Freyssinet performed the following tasks on this major structure:
- stay cable design
- stay cable and damper supply
- technical assistance for stay cable and deck prestressing installation
- expansion joint supply and installation.
The structure forms part of the new 41.5-km Rabat motorway bypass around the city of Rabat and will improve traffic congestion in Hay Riad, the capital's western residential suburb.
