The Khartoum-Tuti Suspension Bridge was designed to resemble suspension bridges in major American and European cities. This bridge, which spans the Blue Nile and links Khartoum Province with Tuti Island, is the first suspension bridge in the Middle East and North Africa.

The composite steel and concrete bridge has a 210-meter main span with one 50-meter approach span on each side, for a total span length of 310 meters.
The innovative foundation design incorporates available technology to anchor the cables and uses shear pins (short piles) to resist the large longitudinal forces from
the cables.
