Prime Minister inaugurated the Meghna and Gumti Bridge
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has inaugurated the much-awaited Second Meghna Bridge and the Second Gumti Bridge, aiming to reduce the plight of travelers on the Dhaka-Chattogram highway.
The prime minister opened the two bridges through a video conference from her official residence Ganabhaban.
On March 16, Sheikh Hasina inaugurated the Shitalakkhya Bridge (Second Kanchpur Bridge) on the River Shitalakkhya, another bridge under the same project.
Japanese contractors Obayshi Corporation, Shimizu Corporation, JFE Engineer Corporation, and IHI Infra Systems Company Limited started the construction of the Second Kanchpur Bridge along with the Second Meghna and Second Meghna-Gumti bridges on the Dhaka-Chattogram Highway in January 2016.
