Bahrain - Saudi rail link study nears completion
Friday, January 16, 2015

A feasibility study into the construction of a second causeway between Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, which will include the first rail link to Bahrain, will be completed in the first quarter of this year

Ms Maryam Ahmed Jumaan, under-secretary for land transport at the Bahrain Ministry of Transport, told delegates at the GCC Rail and Metro conference in Muscat this week that the study, which is being conducted by SNC Lavalin, is nearing completion and the results will be made public in March

Jumaan revealed to the conference that the study proposes two possible routes for the new 87km link and both would connect with new freight and passenger terminals situated on reclaimed land on either side of the sea, north of the existing road causeway.

It is proposed that the link will comprise of 28km of approach tracks, a 26km causeway and 10km bridge. Trains will travel at up to 120km/h and the study estimates that it could carry up to 143,000 containers in the first year of operation rising to 343,000 in 2030 and 602,000 by 2050. Construction is expected to take five to six years to complete with a provisional opening date of 2022
