MUNSHIGANJ: The 16th span of the Padma Bridge was installed on 16 and 17 pillars, making 2.4 km or 24,000 meters of the mega structure visible.

The ‘3-D’ span was installed on Tuesday noon (November 19).   

The dream will come true with installation of 26 more spans.

A total of 41 spans (superstructure) will be installed on the 42 pillars to construct the 6.15-km-long two-storied Padma Bridge. 

Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on October 17 said the construction work on the Padma Bridge will be completed by June of 2021.

The construction work of the long-cherished Padma Bridge started in December, 2015 and the first span (superstructure) among the 41 was installed on September 30, 2017.
