A new bid has been put forward by Bahrain’s business community to install express lanes with automatic checkpoints on the King Fahad Causeway. The plan, if implemented, would require electronic gateways to be installed in dedicated “commuter lanes” that motorists could operate using their CPR card or a fingerprint scan, Gulf Daily News reported. It is the brainchild of Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s (BCCI) transportation committee, who say the proposal ‘“ which has been referred to parliament “ would save time and money while also providing a boost to the country’s economy. Committee head Abdulhakim Al Shammary told the GDN that those who ‘usually travel alone “ either for business appointments, to catch transit flights or to attend a class’ are the most likely to benefit from the scheme.
