Motorbikes allowed on King Fahad Causeway for first time

Picture this: you and your motorbike cruising along King Fahad Causeway admiring the views.

Sounds great, right? Well luckily for you, this fantasy is now a reality as motorbikes will be allowed to use the link between Bahrain and Saudi Arabia for the first time from January 1, 2020.

Before the rule change, the only way to move your bike between the two Kingdoms was to carry it in a trailer or on a tow truck.

Travelling across the causeway will cost BHD2.5 per motorbike in each direction. The far right lane has been designated as being for motorbikes.

You will be able to cross the causeway on a motorbike around the clock, but travel may be suspended during bad weather to prevent accidents.

The news comes after four speed cameras were installed on King Fahad Causeway back in November.

You can find out more about these speed cameras, plus cameras all over the Kingdom, on this app.
