Bahrain to Manama Causeway
The Manama Fourth Crossing forms part of the second phase of the North Manama Causeway and Busaiteen Link, a causeway project that will connect North Busaiteen and Bahrain Bay. A 1km long bridge will carry six lanes of highway with a 150m span over the dredged navigation channel between Busaiteen and Manama. BEaM provided bridge design consultancy services to bidding parties for the 2015 tender issued on behalf of the Ministry of Works, Municipalities and Urban Planning. BEaM’s concept was selected as the preferred architectural design and BEaM was subsequently recommissioned to complete detailed design works for a wider bridge with AECOM. Works on site are due to commence late 2018.
