Celebrating One Year Of The Padma Bridge

Celebrating One Year Of The Padma Bridge

“To achieve optimal results from the Padma Bridge, we need to transform it from a transportation corridor to an economic corridor.”

The Daily Star (TDS): Padma Bridge has completed its first year. How would you evaluate the overall impact of the bridge during this time?

“We have managed 2.5 times more vehicles than the forecast for the first year”

Bridges Division Secretary Md. Monjur Hossain, who is also the Executive Director of Bangladesh Bridge Authority, the implementing and operating agency of Padma Bridge, speaks with The Daily Star’s Tuhin Shubhra Adhikary on the occasion of the first anniversary of the opening of Padma Bridge.

A bridge to prosperity
