North Manama CausewayOverview
In 2011, the Ministry of Works in Bahrain announced the project of the North Manama Causeway, that – in the short term – aims at easing the traffic movement along Al Fateh Highway at its intersections with King Faisal Highway and Shaikh Hamad Bridge, as well as providing access to the Bahrain Bay (BB) and Bahrain Financial Harbour (BFH).
The long term goal falls within the Bahrain Vision 2030 where the new flyover and roads act as an integral part of the planned highway network connecting Al Fateh Highway with the fourth crossing between Manama and Busaiteen.
