Big-ass bridge coming soon to Dubai.

Due to be complete in 2012, this new bridge will a mile long and 670 feet tall, making it the largest suspension bridge in the world. It will carry something like 2000 cars an hour (in both directions!) over 12 lanes of traffic, proving once again that Dubai does austentatious right. Via io9.
