The project aims at the development of a flyover bridge at the Antelias Square signalized junction, which experiences traffic congestion and long queues at the signals. This situation leads to significant delays for vehicles heading eastward from the coastal highway to Matn Caza towns and villages, and the traffic heading southward from Dbaye locality towards Jal Al Dib.

A 250 m long two lane bridge was proposed by the Council for Development and Reconstruction (CDR) to combat the traffic congestion problem. The flyover bridge shall receive the traffic from Antelias to Bikfaya road heading in east direction, allowing through traffic on Naccache-Antelias main road.

An Environmental Impact Assessment study was conducted to address the full potential impacts likely to be generated by the Project.


The following tasks were undertaken during the EIA study:
