Causeway across Kuwait Bay (Jaber Causeway)

Causeway across Kuwait Bay (Jaber Causeway)

The Main Causeway across the Kuwait Bay is a 36-km long project currently being built North of Kuwait City. It will ultimately be connected to Doha Link, another sea link project West of Kuwait City, which connected make together the Jaber Causeway sea link, one of the largest civil engineering project ever built in the Middle East.

The Main Causeway Across Kuwait Bay stretches North of Kuwait City. It is expected that the link will greatly contribute to the development of Northern part of Kuwait. To achieve that, the Causeway will literally cut across Kuwait Bay with a 27-km sea link.

Bridge pylons and girders

For the visible part of the sea link, Dextra worked with contractor Hyundai to offer high tensile post tensioning bar solutions.

Dextra Smooth PT Bar Grade 835/1050s were used all along the sea link for the connection of the precast girders together.

For part of the sea link which is topped by metallic cable-stayed structure. Higher performance bars in Grade 1050/1200 were used to offer a vertical anchoring point between the pylon and the reinforcement of the pile. PT Bars were delivered with a full corrosion protection accessory set by Dextra so that the bars will resists the marine conditions.

Crosshole Sonic Logging tubes

For the concrete integrity testing of the onshore and offshore foundation piles, Dextra supplied around 400,000 linear meters of Sonitec tubes, which are easy to set up and reconnect, without need of welding, which significantly increases the productivity of the pile assemblies.

Once installed, the tubes are firmly in place, supporting without issue the cage lifting and handling.
