Sitra Causeway

“Sitra Causeway project in Bahrain was planned in June 2005 to replace the two previous concrete bridges between Sitra and Manama. These were built in the 1970s and were past viable repair. They could no longer handle the traffic volume being directed to them by the surrounding road system: >6,000 vehicles per hour, with heavy goods vehicles forbidden. The causeway and bridges are a major traffic link in the road network of the country, providing the main link between the capital Manama on Bahrain Island and the Nabih Saleh and Sitra islands.”
