The Prime Minister inaugurated Madhumati and the third Shitalakshya Bridge


AKM Nasim Osman Bridge

The third Shitalakshya Bridge, which has been launched for uninterrupted communication between Narayanganj Sadar and Bandar Upazila, has been named as Bir Muktijoddha AKM Nasim Osman Bridge.

There is about one and a half kilometer approach road on both sides of this 100 km long bridge. The bridge has six lanes. Four lanes will be used by high-speed vehicles, while the remaining two lanes will be used by slow-speed vehicles.

The government expects that the distance between South Bengal and Chittagong and Sylhet will be reduced by at least 20 km through the opening of the bridge.

Shahana Ferdous, Executive Engineer of Roads and Public Paths Office, said, “From now on, the passengers of those two routes (Chittagong and Sylhet) will not have to travel through Dhaka. Due to this, at least two hours of time will be saved for the passengers. Southern passengers can go to Chittagong or Sylhet via Madanpur via Shitalakshya Bridge via Munshiganj via Padma Bridge.

While inspecting the bridge on Sunday afternoon, Narayanganj Deputy Commissioner Manjurul Hafiz also said, “This bridge is connected to Padma Bridge in Narayanganj, Munshiganj.

“People from Khulna, Jessore, Magura, Jhenaidah, Kushtia areas can directly go to Chittagong without entering Dhaka city via Padma bridge. In that case, a great distance will be reduced.”

Pointing out that there will be a huge reduction in expenditure in business or other areas, he said, “More than 8 million people live in this small district and most of the working people live in this part. They can go to that bank in a minute. They don’t have to wait or spend money for the boat anymore.”

Shoaib Ahmed, Additional Chief Engineer and Bridge Project Director of the Roads and Township Department, hopes that if Shitalakshya Bridge is opened, the vehicles will not have to face severe traffic jams on Panchabati Bisik Industrial Area, Panchabati Mor, Chashadha Mor, Signboard, Chittagong Road in Narayanganj or Postgola and Shanir Akhara routes in Dhaka.
