Arch Bridge -

Arch bridges are
arch-shaped and have abutments at each end. The earliest known arch bridges were built by the
Greeks. The weight of the bridge is thrust into the abutments at either side. Dubai in the United Arab Emirates is currently building the Sh. Rashed bin Saeed Crossing. When completed, it will be the largest arch bridge in the world.
