Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will formally inaugurate the much-awaited Padma Bridge on June 25.
Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader disclosed the date to the media following a meeting with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at Ganabhaban onTuesday.
Quader said Sheikh Hasina, however, rejected the proposal to name the bridge after her.
The construction of the bridge began in November 2015 with the aim of connecting the country’s south-western region with the capital via road and rail.
The project cost rose to Tk30,193 crore in 2021 after several revisions.
