The authorities will not collect tolls from vehicles for using the three bridges on Dhaka-Mawa-Bhanga Expressway on June 25, to avoid traffic congestion at these points.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is expected to inaugurate Padma Bridge on June 25.

The Road, Transport, and Highway Division today (June 20, 2022) issued a circular in this regard. Earlier, the finance ministry approved a proposal over the matter.

The three bridges are Bangladesh-China Friendship Bridge (Buriganga Bridge-1) at Postagola, Dhaleshwari Bridge, and Haji Shariatullah Bridge (Arial Kha Bridge) in Madaripur.
