Quader, Shringla visit Feni bridge

Indian High Commissioner Harsh Vardhan Shringla along with Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader yesterday visited Ramgarh in Khagrachhari to inspect the progress of work on constructing a bridge over the Feni River, reports UNB.

The proposed bridge over the Feni River is being funded by the government of India under grant assistance to Bangladesh and constructed by the National Highways and Infrastructure Development Authority of India (NHIDCL).

Once completed, the bridge will provide direct road connectivity between South Tripura and Chittagong through Sabroom (India) - Ramgarh (Bangladesh) link, and will further promote trade, tourism and people-to-people ties between Tripura and Bangladesh, and benefit the entire region.

Test piling work on the Indian side has already commenced and the same is expected to start on the Bangladesh side shortly. The bridge is expected to be completed by April 2020, according to the Indian High Commission in Dhaka.

A delegation, led by Secretary, Public Works Department (PWD), Government of Tripura, Shantanu and comprising senior officials from the NHIDCL and PWD Department, government of Tripura, also visited the site of the Feni bridge along with the Minister and the High Commissioner.

Shantanu mentioned about the Bharat-Bangla Maitree Udyan, a memorial to the Liberation War of Bangladesh, which was inaugurated by Chief Minister of Tripura Manik Sarkar in Chhotakhola, Belonia, Tripura on December 16, 2017.
