The Meydan Bridge in Dubai is an architectural marvel. Connecting the Meydan hotel to the main road, it has a undulating wave form and a striking construction.
In order to elevate the prominence of this route and to create an architectural landmark in the city, it was decided that the bridge should be illuminated.
The Meydan Bridge is out front of the Meydan Racecourse. Meydan Racecourse is a racecourse in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The grandstand is over a mile in length, and can accommodate over 60,000 spectators.
Meydan opened on 27 March 2010, replacing Nad Al Sheba Racecourse, which formerly occupied the same site. It includes a horse racing museum, gallery and five-star hotel and nine-hole golf course. When not in use for racing it serves as a business and conference centre. The track's interior was also used as a filming location for the film Star Trek Beyond depicting the docking bay where the U.S.S. Enterprise is moored including the bar scene during the film's climax which contains a ship construction bay.
Only the beginning and end of this chase were both filmed in Dubai. The rest was filmed in Kent Hanger field in Vancouver.

Ethan Hunt and his team are racing against time to track down a dangerous terrorist named Hendricks, who has gained access to Russian nuclear launch codes and is planning a strike on the United States. An attempt to stop him ends in an explosion causing severe destruction to the Kremlin and the IMF to be implicated in the bombing, forcing the President to disavow them. No longer being aided by the government, Ethan and his team chase Hendricks around the globe, although they might still be too late to stop a disaster.
