The first-ever Y-shaped bridge of the country, which is being built over the Titas River in three upazilas of Comilla and Brahmanbaria, is now waiting to be inaugurated and has already started attracting onlookers.
The construction work of this bridge started on June 16, 2011 under the supervision of Local Government Engineering Department (LGED) and Navana Builders, reports UNB.
The 771.2-metre bridge over the river, costing in total 1.01 billion, will boost the communication and economy of the region.
The bridge will ease the travel across Comilla, Brahmanbaria and Dhaka while locals are being hopeful that it will create a source of recreation for the people around the bridge.
According to locals, after the inauguration of the bridge, education, business and medical sectors of the region will experience more development.
It will also be used as a bypass road connecting to the Chittagong-Dhaka highway.
Earlier, the only means of communication between Homna, Muradnagar and Bancharampur upazilas was boat. So, the y-shaped bridge was a long cherished dream of the local people which is soon going to come true.
Now the people of Comilla are eagerly waiting for the inauguration of the bridge.
