Meraas recently confirmed that Ain Dubai will be completed in time for Expo 2020 Dubai celebrations. Standing at over 250 metres high, the structure will be over 200 percent taller than the first ever Ferris wheel.
Meraas also confirmed that the eighth and final 450-ton temporary spoke has been successfully removed from the structure and the last of the permanent spoke cables has been installed, as progress on the project continues tirelessly.
This process marks the first time the modern observation structure has been one complete wheel since construction began. The eight temporary spokes and braces were originally installed to hold the rim segments in place during the construction of the visually-striking wheel.
Ain Dubai in Numbers:
· 5 ton: the weight of each permanent spoke cable that holds the wheel rim in place
