Banani-Gulshan Bridge opens today
Chief Adviser Fakhruddin Ahmed will inaugurate the newly built Banani-Gulshan Bridge on Gulshan Lake in the city today, says a press release.
The Adviser for Local Government, Rural Development and Cooperatives Md Anwarul Iqbal will be present as the special guest.
The Local Government Engineering Department (LGED) constructed the bridge in time with the government decision to construct a number of bridges over Gulshan Lake at different points to address excessive traffic jam in Banani, Gulshan and Baridhara areas, especially at Kamal Ataturk Avenue.
The Banani-Gulshan Bridge is 306 meters in length and 16 meters in width. It has been constructed six months ahead of the project period of 18 months. The foundation stone of the bridge was laid on October 22 last year.
The people moving towards Gulshan from Banani would cross the bridge to enter Road Nos. 41 and 43, while people coming from Gulshan to Banani would cross the bridge through Road Nos. 34 and 35 to reach Road No. 11 of Banani. The bridge will be opened to traffic on December 8.
