Dubai, UAE, United Arab Emirates, 2010/11/10 - Fleming Gulf is back with the second in the series of Transport Conferences, Roads, Bridges and Tunnels, 2011, due to take place on 7th and 8th of February in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
Billions of dollars are being spent on construction in the Middle East, making this its largest sector. Roads and bridges are vital to every community serving as arteries for goods transportation and people movement. An appropriate and efficient network of roads, bridges, and tunnels, intelligently engineered to reduce congestion and accidents, is of central importance to economies across the globe. It is thus important to ensure the highest degree of efficiency, at the lowest possible cost, when planning such projects.
In the words of Dr. Mostafa A. Hassanain, Head, Bridge & Flyover Projects, Road Projects & Maintenance Directorate, Ministry of Works Manama, Bahrain, “Bridge construction in the Gulf has been for the most part very traditional, mainly using cast-in-place concrete. Precast segmental concrete construction brings in significant benefits such as speed of construction and high quality. Although this technology has been in use in many parts of the World for decades, its use in the Gulf has been very limited. A paradigm shift is needed to enable bridge owners in the Gulf to take advantage of these benefits.”
Through this conference, Fleming Gulf provides construction professionals with an excellent platform to meet government bodies, transport authorities, consultants, contractors, material suppliers and all the relevant players from the industry at its upcoming Roads, Bridges & Tunnels Middle East 2011.

Zayed, Advisor to the Minister , Director, PPP Central Unit, Ministry of Finance, Egypt, Eng. Sulaiman Abdelrahman Al Harjiri, Head of Major Roads & Highways, Directorate of Public Works, Sharjah Government, U.A.E and Dr. Mostafa A.
