The 10th span of the Padma Bridge is ready to be installed on the 33rd and 34th pillars of the bridge.

Span 6C will be installed at the Zajira point on Tuesday. 

Assistant Engineer of the Padma Bridge Project, Humayun Kabir, confirmed the matter to Dhaka Tribune. 

He said: "The span—150 metres long and weighing about 3,140 tons—was transported from the Mawa construction yard, Munshiganj, to Shariatpur’s Zajira upazila point; on Monday morning, by the Tiyan E crane that can bear up to 3,600 tons. 

"The span will be installed on the 33rd and 34th pillars of the bridge on Tuesday."

A total of 41 spans—each 150-metres-long—will be placed on the 42 pillars of the 6.15 kilometre bridge.

So far, nine spans have been placed—on pillars 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41 and 42— on the Zajira end of the bridge; and one more, span 3A, has been installed on the 13th and 14th pillars on the Mawa end.

One temporary span has been placed on pillars 5 and 6 on the Mawa end.
