Padma Bridge: 29th span installed, 4.35 km now visible
The 29th span of the much-anticipated Padma Bridge was installed today, bringing 4.350 kilometers of the structure into view.
The span linking the 19th and 20th pier was installed around 10:45am at Mawar end, Dewan Md Abdul Kader, project manager (main bridge), told The Daily Star.
The span was taken to the spot on the river from the construction yard yesterday, he said.
The development came at a time when the country is facing a virtual lockdown with operation of all types of passenger transport suspended, and public and private offices closed.
