Bahrain is working on a series of causeways that will link Diyar Al-Muharraq to Sayah and Bahrain Bay.
The project, which is part of the Bahrain Vision 2030, will see the roads eventually connect with the North Manama causeway.
The Ministry of Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning is now undertaking land reclamation in the area before construction work on the road itself can begin.
It hopes the causeway will take just 12 months to build once the land reclamation has been completed, reports Gulf Insider.
The BHD94 million project will hopefully reduce traffic across the area.
This isn’t the only causeway-related news coming out of the Kingdom lately – it was recently announced that work on the King Hamad Causeway between Bahrain and Saudi Arabia will begin in 2021.
And VIVA Bahrain has pitched an automated payment system on the current King Fahd Causeway which it claims could reduce your commute by up to 40 minutes.
