39th span of Padma Bridge installed, 5,850 meters become visible

The 39th span (2-D) was installed on the Padma Bridge on Friday noon.

The span was installed on Piers 10 and 11 at the Mawa-end in Munshiganj. Following the installation of the 39th span, the 5,850 meters or over 5.85 kilometers of the bridge have become visible.

Dewan Abdul Kader, executive engineer of the Padma Multipurpose Bridge, confirmed the matter.

Construction of the Padma Bridge began in December 2014.  The first span was installed on the Piers 37 and 38 on September 30, 2017.

The 6.15km long Padma Bridge is being built installing 41 spans (each 150 meters in length) on a total of 42 piers of the bridge.

China Major Bridge Engineering Construction Company has been constructing the main bridge, while Sinohydro Corporation of China has been doing the river training work. Abdul Monem Limited of Bangladesh has been constructing two approach roads of the Padma Bridge.

The Padma Bridge will be a two-storeyed double-deck bridge in shape. It is being built with concrete and steel. The bridge is likely to be opened for traffic in 2021.
