Saudi-Bahrain rail causeway expected to be delayed

Saudi-Bahrain rail causeway expected to be delayed .A causeway project to link Saudi Arabia and Bahrain by rail may miss its current completion target of 2018, according to Bahrain’s Minister of Transport Kamal bin Ahmed.

The deadline and funding for the causeway, which is part of the $15.5bn (SAR: 4.1bn) Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) railway project, is set to be determined by September following a joint study by the two countries.

Ahmed told a Bahraini radio show that both countries’ ministries of transport and finance are studying the “best way to finance and technically develop” the causeway.

“The target is 2018; I’m not sure if we can achieve it. It’s something we will identify at the end of the study in September 2014,” he said.

“I hope during the next few years we will expedite this project but it’s big, it’s complicated and we need to make sure that we do it right.
