The Padma Multipurpose Bridge is set to open its door to connect Dhaka with the southern part of Bangladesh on June 25, 2022. The design of the Padma Bridge has some rare features. And these rare features have brought Bangladesh a reputation of excellence to the whole world. Although close to the river, the water distance from the railway bridge will be at least 18 meters. As a result, even if the water level rises, it will not be difficult for ships to pass through the floor of this bridge. Currently, the decoration work of the bridge is nearing completion. In addition to the general lighting system on the bridge, there is 'architectural lighting'. A museum has also been set up to beautify the bridge. It will show the various materials used to build the Padma Bridge. While your visit to Mawa, you can enjoy the beauty of this magnificent structure by travelling by boat and mesmerising its night beauty when all the lights are glittering to their best.
