How to cross highways?  Due to all these issues, it is strongly recommended to use pedestrian bridges to cross highways. However, it is also a fact that there are very limited pedestrian bridges on Saudi roads. For example;      On King Abdul Aziz Road in Jeddah (around 18 km), there is no pedestrian bridge at all and the speed limit for cars is 100 km/h.     On Prince Majed Road in Jeddah (around 10 km), there is only one pedestrian bridge.
