Key Projects

Padma Multipurpose Bridge Project

Approximately 40 km southwest of Dhaka, comprises a new fixed crossing of the Padma River in Bangladesh, which will consist of a bridge approximately 6.15 km long, major river training works, and approximately 13.6 km of approach roads and bridge-end facilities, including toll plazas, service areas, and offices.

Padma Bridge Rail Link Project

The new railway route will provide a substantially shorter route by shortening the travel distance between Dhaka-Jessore, Dhaka-Khulna, and Dhaka-Darsana by 184.72km, 212.05 km, and 44.24 km respectively. This rail link will become a vital railway corridor in terms of national as well as regional railway traffic demand

Multi Lane Road Tunnel under the River Karnaphuli

The tunnel and approach roads are split into two distinct sections. One is located on the north-western side of the Karnaphuli River and the other on the southern eastern side of the river. The first is called the western bank section and the second is called the eastern bank section. Total length is 9,266 m
