Saudi to build two bridges linking Bahrain, Qatar
The fist bridge of 40km-long will be built between Al-Ahsa and Bahrain, while the second bridge, of 25km-long, will link Al-Ahsa to Qatar
Two bridges, which will directly connect Saudi Arabia to Bahrain and Qatar, are set to be built "in the near future", Adel bin Mohammad Al-Malham, secretary of Al-Ahsa, revealed.
“One of the two proposed bridges — 40km long — is expected to be built between Al-Ahsa and Bahrain. It would be 100 km away from the King Fahd Causeway, and 380 km from Riyadh,” he said at the Gulf municipal work conference in Qatar.
The second bridge, which will link Al-Ahsa to Qatar, is expected to be 25km-long, Arab News reported.
“It would be 70 km away from the proposed Al-Ahsa-Bahrain bridge and 425 km away from Riyadh,” Al-Malham added.
The conference focused on the future developmental vision for cooperation between Saudi Arabia and other GCC countries.
