Around 1350 metres of the much-hyped Padma Bridge is now visible with the installation of 9th span on the pillars no 34 and 35 yesterday. The 150-metre span, weighing 3,140 tonnees, was installed at the Jajira point around 8:45 am, said deputy assistant engineer of Padma Bridge project, Humayun Kabir. Earlier, the span of the Pabma Bridge was taken to the Jajira point by the 3600 tonnes capacity floating crane 'Tian-E' from the Mawa Kumarbhog Construction Ward, five kilometres away from the point on Wednesday but it could not be installed

till Thursday afternoon due to poor navigability at the point. The works of Padma Multipurpose Bridge became visible with the installation of 150-metre first span on the pillars no 37 and 38 on October 30, 2017. Later, the 2nd, 3rd and 4th and 5th spans were installed on the pillars 38-39, 39-40, and 40-41 respectively in 2018.

Besides, the F-1 span (super structure) was kept on the pillar 4 and 5 at Mawa point due to the construction works of pillar 6 and 7. The construction work on the country’s largest bridge started in December 2015. The 6.15-km bridge will have a total of 41 spans, each 150 metres long.

According to the engineers concerned, a total of 41 spans will be installed on 42 concrete pillars.
