DUBAI, UAE, July 7 /PRNewswire/ — Bridges Middle East is an important
four-day event focusing on the designing, building and maintaining of next
generation bridges. This is the region’s only conference dedicated
specifically to addressing the current challenges faced in creating iconic

complementary countries and economies. It is also poised to become the first
link in a Middle East (GCC) rail network, by providing an unobstructed
connection for freight and high speed passenger rail service between Bahrain
and Qatar, along a rail system that may one day connect many of the GCC

The Governments of the State of Qatar and the Kingdom of Bahrain intend
to build a four-lane, 40 kilometer long causeway, consisting of roadway
sections on reclaimed embankment and natural islands, low level bridge
structures and signature long-span bridges. Through an exclusive focus day
the QBCF will take you through a detailed look at the planning and
implementation of the world’s longest over water link.
