King Fahd Bridge

Aerial picture of the bridge that connect Bahrain and KSA
This is a picture of bridge part of King Fahd Causeway. I dubbed it as King Fahd Bridge. This multiple dike-bridge combination is connecting Bahrain and KSA (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, oh I just found out that what KSA stands for LOL where have I been all these time :P).

Anyway, this magnificent construction was built and finished in relatively short period by considering its complicated detail project. It was signed in 1981, followed by cornerstoner laying by the late King Fadh of Saudi Arabia and Sheikh Isa bin Salman al-Khalifa. It was officially opened for use on November 25, 1985. It spans 25 km long and it costs US$ 1.2 billion. Wah!!
Do you guys have a monstrous size building or anything back home?

Most bridges here would have more of an arch to allow boats to pass under them.
