Quader: Padma Bridge is no longer a dream, it is a reality
Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader has said the Padma Bridge dream has turned into reality. He said: “When the World Bank stepped back from this project, it was clouded in uncertainty. Now with the decision of Sheikh Hasina, the cloud has been cleared. “Today Padma Bridge is no longer a colourful dream, it is a reality. Today it is visible to the world.” On Saturday morning, he announced the beginning of the installation of spans of Padma Bridge. The first span was installed on the 37th and 38th pillars at Janjira point of Shariatpur. Obaidul said: “My heart is overflowing like the waves of Bay of Bengal.” He also added: “Today is a golden day for the nation. Everyone has contributed: secretary, project director, representatives, locals on both sides of the Padma and the army. “When I called the prime minister, she was in Washington. I asked if we should wait until her arrival. “She asked us to not wait for her and continue the work,” he said. The minister further added: “The prime minister doesn’t want us to delay a minute. When she arrives, she will formally inaugurate this.” According to Obaidul, the project’s progress rate is currently at 47.5%. Forty-nine percent work of the main bridge is complete while the connecting bridge at Mawa is done. The connecting bridge at Janjira is 99% done.   This article was first published on banglatribune.com
