Located just off the coast of Dubai Marina on the man-made, Bluewater’s Island, Ain Dubai – or the Eye of Dubai – is now officially the world’s tallest and largest observation wheel – standing over 250 metres tall and with a capacity of 1,750 passengers at any one time.
82 metres taller than its predecessor, Ain Dubai represents the single greatest increase in height for this type of structure – something that could have only been achieved in a place like Dubai.
The world-first spherical structure, containing the world’s largest and highest resolution LED screen that will not only transform the Las Vegas skyline, but quite literally reshape the live entertainment industry.
Since the days of Dean Martin and the Rat Pack in the 1960’s Las Vegas has been renowned for live entertainment and between showcase fights and residencies from Lady Gaga, Celine Dion, Britney Spears and Magic Mike the city is constantly raising the bar with what it has to offer.
Its latest offering, developed by Madison Square Garden Entertainment and located just off the strip behind the Venetian, is unlike anything anywhere else on Earth.
Japan’s capital has built the world’s best subway system (in our opinion). Discover the benefits of connected construction for metro and rail construction projects – https://bit.ly/3eBeNPh
The Tokyo subway (東京の地下鉄, Tōkyō no chikatetsu) is a part of the extensive rapid transit system that consists of Tokyo Metro and the Toei Subway in the Greater Tokyo area of Japan. While the subway system itself is largely within the city center, the lines extend far out via extensive through services onto suburban railway lines.
Norway’s grand plan to build the world’s first full-scale ship tunnel is finally going ahead. This is how it’ll be done.
It’s been talked about for years, but now the Stad Ship Tunnel has finally been approved and work will start in 2022. Costing over USD $300M and taking three-to-four years to complete, the project will see a new mile-long shipping route carved under the Stadhavet peninsula at its narrowest point.
Now, we’ve built tunnels for boats before – like on the Canal du Midi in France, but the Norway project takes things to a whole different level – after all there’s a pretty big difference between a small tourist boat and a cruise ship.
Measuring 37 metres high by 26.5 metres wide, and with a depth of 12 metres, the tunnel will be big enough for ships up to 16,000 tonnes to pass through.
This crazy project is the answer to a problem that’s existed for more than a thousand years. Quite literally since the time of the Vikings, traversing the Stadhavet Sea has meant a treacherous journey for boats.
