Four speed cameras installed on King Fahad causeway

Four new speed cameras are being installed on the Bahrain side of King Fahad causeway.

The General Directorate of Traffic has installed the cameras to limit serious violations that could harm road users.

The cameras will be activated over the next few days. The department urged drivers using the causeway to follow traffic rules.

The news comes after Saudi Arabia and Bahrain signed a BHD3.3 million deal with three firms who will start work on the King Hamad causeway.

KPMG, AECOM and CMS will design the new bridge and develop the financing model. The new causeway will run parallel to the current one and it is hoped it will reduce traffic.

Work is set to start on the causeway in 2021, and should last three years.

You can see where all the speed cameras in Bahrain are located thanks to the e-traffic app. If a camera is taken out of service, or a new camera is added, the app will be updated.

The total cost of the causeway project is BHD1.5 billion, and will see two railway lines built on the bridge.

These railway lines will eventually become part of the proposed Gulf Railway, which will connect each of the GCC countries.
