The 15th span of the Padma multipurpose bridge was installed at the Zajira point on Tuesday. 

Humayun Kabir, assistant engineer of Padma Bridge (main bridge), confirmed the matter to the Dhaka Tribune. 

He said: “With the installation of the 15th span on its 23rd and 24th pillars, the construction work of 2250 meters, of the country’s largest bridge, has been completed so far .

However, the installation of the 15th span of the bridge was delayed due to inclement weather and rainy season,” he added. The engineer also said that many times work gets delayed because of the large amount of silt stuck in the river, hindering the crane’s navigation.

According to a report, work for the Jazeera and Mawa connecting road and service area-2 has been completed ,and 169,000 trees have been planted on either side of the bridge. A museum is also being set up in the nearby area.

The government has, till June, given nearly Tk 6.42 billion in compensation to those who sustained damages during construction. Moreover, 2,690 land plots have been handed over to families in the repatriation area, and 697 homeless families were given plots for free.

According to experts, the national economy is expected to witness 1.2 percent GDP growth rate, while 0.84 percent poverty will be reduced every year.

The state-funded 9.83 km bridge will cost approximately Tk 301.93 billion for construction, and so far the progress of the project is at 74 percent.
