The King Fahad Causeway has reopened to transit trucks.
Commercial transit traffic will now be able to use the bridge linking Bahrain to Saudi Arabia, following restrictions to stop the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
The causeway has been closed to regular traffic since March 7, and there has been no official word on when it will reopen.
Since closing, authorities have completed a number of upgrades to improve travellers’ experience when using the bridge.
The old gates on the Saudi Arabia side have been removed, with new gates added. Plus, comprehensive electronic payments at the fee gates on both sides is set to be launched in phases.
These improvements will see the capacity of King Fahad Causeway increased by 45 percent.

There are plans to build a second bridge, the King Hamad Causeway, to run parallel to the current one but construction works are not due to start until 2021.
