Design and construction of the 25 km long King Fahd Causeway between Saudi Arabia and Bahrain.

To facilitate the work, a work island was reclaimed north-west of Bahrain for the construction of factories, linked to Bahrain by a dam for transport purposes. Channels had to be dredged to enable the heavy transport of construction elements to the building site. For the construction of the embankments a quantity of 5 million tons of rock and broken stones has been used as well as some ten million m³ of sand that has been dredged from the sea bottom. The foundation and superstructure of the bridges is built of prefabricated elements, the biggest of which having a weight of 1200 tons. The sunken foundation caissons for the main span are poured in with underwater concrete.
