The Al Wahda Arches are the tallest and most prominent architectural monument in Qatar. Standing 100m tall, the dual arches are located along the new Lusail Expressway and serve as the gateway to Doha’s West Bay business district.
The unique intertwined and tilted arches represent a creative combination of modernity, heritage and great engineering achievements. The base of the arches feature Limra limestone, sourced and supplied from Turkey. The structure itself consists of 54 large steel pieces, weighing over 9,000 tons. The installation was extremely complex due to the leaning angle and overall massive size.
The Lusail Expressway opened last year and was awarded the Engineering News Record (ENR) for Global Best Project for the Roads/Highways category in 2018.
