World’s longest marine causeway to start construction by 2010?

The Qatar-Bahrain Friendship Causeway, a 40km long marine causeway featuring a 22km bridge and 18km embankments connecting the west coast of Qatar to the east coast of Bahrain, is scheduled to begin construction in 2010.

The $3 billion project was originally scheduled to begin last year in May 2008, however in a statement from Bahrain’s Works Minister Fahmi al-Jowder the new deadline was announced.
