In Asia and the Middle East, where the Group was first active for the “Planning and Development of Seaside Tourism Areas in Yemen”, TEAM is mostly involved in supporting local Administrations and Contractors on important transport infrastructure projects. Activities in this region include the design of the new Shiraz Metro Line 2 in Iran and subsequent Lines 4-5-6, and most recently, the Works Supervision for the Zhengzhou-Zhoukou-Fuyang High Speed Railway Line (Anhui section) in China. Major structures designed by TEAM include the new cable-stayed bridge in Basra (total length of 761m), and the proposal for a new suspension bridge over the River Tigris in Baghdad (main span of 600m), both in Iraq.
