EIA FOR KINGDOM OF SAUDI ARABIA TO KINGDOM OF BAHRAIN RAIL LINK NEARING COMPLETION

Environment Arabia was appointed by SNC-Lavalin to undertake an EIA for the portion of the GCC Railway that will connect the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to the Kingdom of Bahrain via a new proposed causeway in the vicinity of the existing King Fahd Causeway. The project will further improve the transportation links between the GCC Member States and will foster economic trade and social growth, integration and development.

The project involved extensive terrestrial and marine environmental baseline surveys and a large team of experts in the fields of terrestrial and marine ecology including marine mammals, noise, air quality, remote sensing image classification (marine habitat), cultural heritage and archaeology, geology and hydrogeology, fisheries and hydrodynamic modelling.
