PM Hasina opens 100 bridges

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Monday inaugurated 100 bridges in 25 districts for traffic in her government's efforts to establish direct road connectivity to further strengthen the country's economy.

"It is an historical event to open 100 bridges at a time. It will contribute to the country's socio-economic development," she said while virtually inaugurating the bridges from her official Ganabhaban residence in the capital.
 
The bridges, constructed at a cost of over Tk 8,790 million, established direct road connectivity with the capital as they made 33 routes free from ferry services that will make road communication smooth, quicker, easier and safer, reports BSS.
 
Of the bridges, 46 are in Chattogram division, 17 in Sylhet division, 14 in Barishal division, seven each in Dhaka and Rajshahi division, six in Mymensingh division and three in Rangpur division.
 
Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader also spoke on the occasion.
 
PM's Principal Secretary Dr Ahmad Kaikaus moderated the function while Road Transport and Highways Division Secretary A B M Amin Ullah Nuri gave a brief description of the bridges.
 
A video documentary on the bridges was screened on the occasion.
