  • Prime minister Sheikh Hasina will inaugurate the main bridge construction work of Padma Multipurpose Bridge today (Saturday) morning at Jajira point in Shariatpur district.
    She will also inaugurate the river training work at Mawa point in Munshiganj.
    The government is building the Padma Bridge about 6.15-km, the country's largest infrastructure, with its own fund of Tk 28,000 crore.
    On completion of the project, nearly six crore people of 19 southern districts will be connected with the rest of the country, including the capital Dhaka.
    The work on the Padma Bridge is broadly divided into five parts -- the main bridge, river training, two link roads and infrastructure (service area) construction.
    The two-tier Padma Bridge has the provisions for movement of vehicles on the upper tier of the bridge and operation of train on the lower tier.
