A U.S. based company presented a project to connect Cyprus to Lebanon with a 150km highway/bridge from Dbayeh to Limassol. Drivers can reach Cyprus from Lebanon within 80 minutes. Passengers between the two countries will pay a fee to use the bridge between the two countries and will be a great opportunity to promote tourism and bilateral economic ties.
The proposal also suggests that after 10 years from implementing the project the bridge will be owned by Lebanon and Cyprus. The project will also include a path for ships, similar to the bridge between KSA and Bahrain which is 14 times larger than the proposed highway between Lebanon and Cyprus.
