Padma Bridge Project

The Padma Bridge is an under-construction multipurpose road-rail bridge across the Padma River in Bangladesh. It will connect Louhajong, Munshiganj to Shariatpur and Madaripur, linking the Southwest of the country, to the Northern and Eastern regions. Padma Bridge is the most challenging construction project in the history of Bangladesh. The two-level steel truss bridge will carry a four-lane highway on the upper level and a single-track railway on a lower level. With 150 m spans, 6.150 km (20,180 ft) total length and 18.10 m width it is going to be the largest bridge in the Pawdda-Brahmaputra-Meghna river basins of the country in terms of both span and the total length.
