Dhaka, 13 May, Abnews: The under construction Padma Bridge project witnessed a major progress with installation of its forth span at Jazira point of Shariatpur this morning, making 600-metre of the much-hyped bridge visible.
Officials concerned today said engineers with support of heavy machineries including cranes placed the 150-metre long and 3,200 tons span between pillars no. 40 and 41 at 8 am while the development came two months after the third span was set up, making the mega structure more visible.
The 6.15 kilometres long bridge, which will connect the country's southern region to the capital, will hugely boost communications and trade and economic activities.
When the construction of the Padma Bridge is completed, the capital will be directly connected with 21 southern districts through road and railways.
The government is constructing the bridge with its own funds.
