Road, Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Saturday said the much-anticipated Padma Bridge will be inaugurated on time.
“The Padma Bridge is the number one priority project of our government. This is a mega project. The construction work is progressing in full swing. The project is now a reality. Piers will be placed on spans soon,” he said during a visit to the project area at Mawa point.
“The Padma Bridge is a very unpredictable project. It is very difficult to measure the soil condition underneath the river, but our experts are doing it perfectly so far," the minister added.
Senior officials of the Padma bridge project were present at the briefing.
