Padma Bridge to be opened on June 25
Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader has said the Padma Bridge would be opened on June 25 to directly connect the south-western region with the capital Dhaka.
Talking to newsmen in front of Ganabhaban in Dhaka, emerging from a meeting with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, he said the premier would open the bridge for traffic on Tuesday, May 24, 2022.
“The bridge will be named after the river Padma. . . not after any member of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s family,” Quader said replying to a question.
Quader is also the General Secretary of the ruling Awami League.
