Two other temporary spans have also been set up

The 12th permanent Padma Bridge span has been installed on pillars 15 and 16 at Mawa point, 

The span was installed around 4pm on Saturday, making 2,100m of Bangladesh’s largest structure visible.

Confirming the incident, deputy assistant engineer of the project Humayun Kabir, said:”On Thursday, the '3-C' span was transported to pillars 15 and 16 by a floating crane from the Mawa Construction Yard. But due to inclement weather and excessive silt deposits beside the pillars, the span could not be installed that day.

On May 25, the 11th Padma Bridge span was placed on pillars 14 and 15. 

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

The Padma Multipurpose Bridge started becoming visible with the installation of the first 150-metre span on pillars 37 and 38 back in September 30, 2017.

The second, third, fourth, and fifth spans were installed on pillars 38-39, 39-40, and 40-41 respectively, in 2018.

Work on the country's largest bridge started in December 2015.
