Default Padma Bridge- Construction Begins in 2010

Good news for Bangladesh that finally the dream of Padma bridge is becoming a reality. This bridge will be immensely important in making the Mongla port much more useable by all in BD. Besides, it will connet the South. Should give a boost to our economy.

In future, Can there be railway in the south?

When I was in BD in 2007 I saw a bill board near the karnafuli bridge saying they were making a new bridge there and it was going to be finished in 2010.Is it finished yet or close to being finished?

Truth is Mawa needs a bridge. The number of 5 Ton trucks blocking the roads all the way down to Kachpur has become a serious problem.

I feel sad for the people who will be relocated. In BD, they never get proper compensation.

Cheques are being handed out to the District Commissioners for compensation based on the current market price.

This is the rendering given in daily star, it shows rail line in the middle.. infact the picture above is the same but hard to identify the rail track it looks like a divider.

The importance of this bridge goes beyond description.
There are not enough words what the Padma Bridge means for the economic,social and overall development of our country.

I have seen tv report on those who will be relocated for the construction of the bridge. It was so amazing to hear them when they said they are ready to sacrifice their life and belonging and resettle in a new place if that means a greater good for the country!

It was so moving to see that the people who live below the borderline are still ready to sacrifice what they have if it brings a greater good.

So far, what i read, the govt is moving so far so good in terms of rehabilitation of those uprooted.

Anyone knows how much will the bridge cost?

Well, the Govt is planning to finish the construction in 3 years.
They'd start in 2010 and wants to finish it by 2013, before the next election is due.

Believe it not, they are actually going to finish the bridge 3-6 months ahead of schedule.

I really hope that this bridge is finished on time... i worry because almost every govt project in BD runs behind schedule!

BTW, is the link road between Bijoy Sarani and Tejgaon road open for public service yet?

An incorrect image. This will nowhere be a realistic model of a Bangladesh transportation system;it's laughably far from including the feriwalas, rickshawalas, tokai climbers, fakirs and paglababas.

Virtually all government projects in most countries run behind schedule.
