Plans to expand the King Fahad Causeway, the congested crossing between Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, is being put together, it has been reported.

The multi-million dollar project would involve the construction of several new lanes to ease traffic flow.

"The King Fahad Causeway Authority (KFCA) has formulated a long-term plan which is now being discussed and will be approved by the KFCA board before it is submitted to the government for approval," said an official told Gulf Daily News.

"The plan, which would take between five and eight years to be fully implemented, will significantly increase facilities for motorists, truckers and others who use the crossing between Bahrain and Saudi Arabia."

The plan was discussed at a KFCA meeting, held recently at the crossing point on the Saudi side of the causeway.

A study has also been commissioned to look at future traffic flow beyond the next five years, until 2020.
