Work on two bridges connecting Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province with Bahrain and Qatar is expected to begin in the near future, an official has been quoted as saying.

“One of the two proposed bridges — 40 km long — is expected to be built between Al-Ahsa and Bahrain. It would be 100 km away from the King Fahd Causeway and 380 km from Riyadh,” quoted Adel bin Mohammad Al-Malham, secretary of Al-Ahsa, Eastern Province said, according to Arab News.

He added that another bridge linking Al-Ahsa with Qatar would be 25km long and located 70km away from the proposed Al-Ahsa-Bahrain Bridge and 425km from Riyadh.

The proposed developments were covered in a working paper to highlight future cooperation between the Gulf states presented by Al-Malham during a conference in Qatar in May.
