A bridge that will link Qatar and Bahrain has finally been approved, after years of being stalemated in its developmental stages, The Media Line reported. The bridge, which will span 40km, will significantly reduce travel time between Qatar and Bahrain: the journey presently takes about five hours and requires a trip to Saudi Arabia, but via the bridge it will take 30 minutes. The Qatar-Bahrain Friendship Bridge will begin in Raas Asheerj, Qatar, and will end in North Askar, Bahrain. The bridge will be an extension of the already-existing King Fahd causeway, which links Bahrain and Saudi Arabia. Note: Finally approved? It was approved last month.
