The 38th span on the Padma Bridge has been installed on Saturday.

The span bearing number ‘1-A’ was placed on the first and second pillars at Mawa point.

Now, some 5,700 meters of the bridge’s main structure is visible.

Padma Bridge’s Executive Engineer Dewan Md Abdul Quader said a floating crane Tian-E started bringing the span from the specialized workshop at Kumarbhogh in Mawa at around 9:30 am.

After bringing the span to the stipulated pillars, the concerned engineers started the installation work of the span.

He said the 39th span is expected to be installed later this month while the 40th span and the remaining one will be placed within December.

The 6.15-km long double-layer bridge will have a total of 41 spans.

The multi-purpose Padma Bridge is expected to be opened in 2021.
