Padma Bridge: A Symbol of Friendship, Partnership, and Development
There are two sides to the river Padma: in the winter it is peaceful and serene, and in the summer it is harsh and ferocious. Padma may be found flourishing in the words of poets, in the voices of musicians, and above anything else in our hearts. On June 26, 2022, Padma Bridge was officially opened by the government.
This resulted in another another triumphant period for Bangladesh. Construction of the Padma Bridge's river training works at Jajira point, Shariatpur, and at Mawa, Munshiganj, as well as the main bridge's number 7 piling construction at Mawa circle, were all opened that day. This marked the formal beginning of work on the major bridge.
The seventh pillar, located one kilometer inside the river bed at Mawa, will be started immediately after the PM's ceremonial inauguration. German-made 10,000-ton hydraulic hammers were used to push pillars into the river bottom. Only one pillar will emerge from the river bed per six pilings. The 42 pillars will support Padma Bridge, which will span the river between its two sides.
The Padma Bridge is an essential part of the puzzle for a more balanced growth of the southern part of Bangladesh. The government of Bangladesh reached a deal with the World Bank and a few other organizations in April 2011 to secure the financing. Initially, the World Bank agreed to fund the project with $1.2 billion. Yet, the World Bank's lending arrangement was terminated in June of 2012. Only temporarily was the dream of Padma Bridge shattered. In a bold move, the government of Bangladesh immediately decided to build the Padma Bridge using its own resources. Construction of Padma Bridge has reached a critical juncture and is about to be completed. By December 2014, the first work orders had been issued. The river training works for the Padma Bridge were officially opened to the public on December 12, 2015, at Jajira point in Shariatpur. She also dedicated Mawa's new main bridge on the same day.
Building Plans for the Padma Multipurpose Bridge
Padma Bridge, as planned, would stretch for around 6.15 kilometers. Once finished, it will be Bangladesh's longest road bridge. The construction sites for the bridge are located at Mawa, Munshiganj, and Janzira, Shariatpur. Louhajong in Munshiganj will be linked to Shariatpur and Madaripur district, bridging the north and east to the south and west of the nation. There will be 42 of these pillars supporting the bridge. Forty will be in the river itself, while the other two will be on the approach roads leading up to the connecting bridge. Each pillar will have six piles placed in the river below it, for a total of two hundred and forty piles. A total of 24 more piles are needed to support the exterior's two pillars. Exactly 264 heaps will be present. Each pile will be 150 meters long, with 120 of that length going into the ocean at great depth (the deepest of any bridge in the world). The pillars will support steel bridges. There will be 41 individual spans on the bridge. The bridge will consist of two stories. Up above, you'll find a four-lane highway, and down below, a train line. The train will travel at a speed of 160 kilometers per hour. The bridge will last for a century.
