Saudi-Egypt causeway project on track

Egyptian transport minister, Mohamed Rashad Al-Mateny has said Egypt and Saudi Arabia are pressing ahead with plans for a proposed $3bn causeway project linking the two countries, Arab News has reported. A technical committee will meet in late September to discuss first steps to implement the project, the minister said. Under the plan, the 32-km causeway is to start from Ras Nassrani in the Egyptian resort of Sharm El-Sheikh and pass by Tiran Strait before reaching Ras Hamid near Tabuk in northern Saudi Arabia.
