Paragraph on Padma Bridge
The Padma Bridge is one of the dream projects of Bangladesh. It is a multipurpose road and rail bridge over the Padma River. It will be the sixths largest bridge in the world upon completion.
The construction journey was started by China Railway Major Bridge Engineering Company Limited from 7 December 2014. The whole construction is supposed to be completed by 2022. The two-level steel truss bridge is 6.15 km long and 18.10 m wide. It has a four-lane highway on the upper level and a single track railway on a lower level. The whole project cost is estimated to be US 3.868 Billion (Including VAT and IT).
It wasn’t easy at the start considering funds and other economic issues when the World Bank canceled its credit agreement. At last, the country had come up with its own funding. There was not only an economic issue but also an environmental problem. The river Padma has two natures – calm in winter and cruel in summer. So, the construction process was divided into 6 parts. The first was constructing the main bridge. The second part was River training works around 14 km (1.6 Mawa + 12.4 in Janjira). The third and fourth parts were connecting the main bridge with two highways. The final part was constructing the service area and supervision.
The bridge will connect the southwest part of the country with the capital and eastern part. As a result, regional cooperation and transport management will be improved. Besides, it will cause a radical change in industrial development. Medical and educational facilities will be easier to access. Thus, it will play an important role in the economic sector of Bangladesh. The Padma Bridge is supposed to be inaugurated in December 2021. The world will witness one more history of proud Bangladesh.
