PM opens Bangamata Fazilatun Nesa Bridge in Pirojpur

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday (Sep 4) inaugurated the much-hyped ‘Bangamata Begum Fazilatun Nesa Mujib 8th Bangladesh-China Friendship Bridge’ over Kacha River at Bekutia in Pirojpur. She opened the 1,493-metre bridge joining a function virtually from her office in the capital in the morning, local media reported.

With the opening of the bridge, dreams of millions of the country's southwestern region was materialised as it established direct road connectivity between Khulna and Barishal divisions.  

The construction of the bridge started on Nov 1 in 2018 by the Roads and Highways Department.

The bridge helps establish direct road connectivity among Kuakata Sea beach, Payra deep sea port, Mongla sea port and the country's largest land port Benapole.
