The PM will virtually inaugurate the newly-constructed bridges simultaneously from her official Ganabhaban residence on Monday morning.

The government has constructed 100 bridges costing Tk 879.62 crore. Of the bridges, 45 are in Chattogram division, 17 in Sylhet division, 14 in Barisal division, six in Mymensingh, five each in Gopalganj, Rajshahi and Rangpur, two in Dhaka and one in Cumilla, reports BSS.

"The PM will gift the bridges to the countrymen. We are waiting for the auspicious occasion," Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader told the press earlier.

He said apart from making road communication smooth and easier by reducing travel time, the bridges will play a vital role in strengthening the country's economy.
