The 14th span of the 6.15-kilometre long Padma Bridge would be installed on the 15th and the 16th pillars at Mawa area in the district tomorrow morning.

“If everything goes well, the 150-meter long ninth span would be installed on two pillars at Mawa point after 10am tomorrow,” an engineer of Padma Multipurpose Bridge told BSS here.

He said with the installation of the 14th span at Mawa point, 21,00 metres of the main structure of this mega bridge will become visible. “Installation of the span was scheduled for June 27 (yesterday) and June 28 (today). But we could not install yesterday and today due to unfavorable weather and silt depositing,” he added.

A total of 41 spans will be installed on 42 concrete pillars to complete the bridge, he added.

According to the project details, the construction of the 6.15-kilometre long Padma Bridge is going on in full swing with the target to complete it as soon as possible.

On October 14, 2018, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina unveiled the name plaque of Padma Bridge Toll Plaza at the Mawa end.

According to experts, the national economy is expected to witness 1.2 percent GDP growth rate, while 0.84 percent poverty will be reduced every year after completion of the bridge to be built with an estimated cost of Taka 30,193.39 crore.

The first span of the Padma Bridge was installed on September 30, 2017. The second span was installed four months later on January 28, 2018 while the third one was placed on March 11, after one and a half months.
