Worlds Longest Bridge Construction Starting Soon


The Qatar-Bahrain Friendship Causeway, a 25 mile long marine causeway featuring a 14 mile bridge and 12 mile embankments connecting the west coast of Qatar to the east coast of Bahrain, is scheduled to begin construction in 2010. The project is expected to cost $3 billion. When completed, the causeway will be the longest in the world reducing the travel time from Qatar to Bahrain from four-and-a-half hours to around 30 minutes. The volume of traffic on the causeway is expected to be around 10,000 to 12,000 vehicles a day.
