PM opens Modhumoti, 3rd Shitalakhhya bridges
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today inaugurated Modhumoti Bridge (locally known as Kalna Bridge) in Narail and Bir Muktijodhhda AKM Nasim Osman 3rd Shitalkhhya Bridge in Narayanganj.
The PM joined the inaugural programmes virtually from Gono Bhaban.
The construction of Kalna Bridge, the first six-lane bridge in the country, will fill up the last missing link of Asian Highway-1 route and cut the distance between Dhaka and Jashore significantly.
The 3rd Shitalakhhya Bridge, the long-delayed project, will establish direct road link between Narayanganj city and Bandar upazila and will ultimately create a direct connectivity between two major national highways -- Dhaka-Chattogram and Dhaka-Mawa-Bhanga-Barishal-Patuakhali highways.
