Work on a new 4km long bridge that will facilitate fresh seawater circulation in the Arad Lagoon project in Bahrain is expected to begin next year, according to an official who spoke to Trade Arabia News Service.

The bridge will link Khalifa Al Kabeer Highway and Arad Highway near Avenue 40, said Ghazi Al Murbati, a Muharraq Municipal Council member from Al Hala area.

The bridge and the approach roads were planned to ease traffic flow to the airport, Hidd, Halat Al Naim and other adjoining areas, he added.

The new bridge would drastically reduce the driving time between Arad and Hidd, he said.

“Funding for the project is expected to be taken from the $2bn (BHD 753m) provided by the GCC member states,” he added.

The project is expected to be completed in 2014.
