A total of 1200 meters of much-hyped Padma Bridge is now visible following the installation of the 8th span on pillar no 35 and 36 on Wednesday.

The span has been installed in the Jajira point around 12:35pm.

The construction work on the country's largest bridge started in December in 2015.

The work of Padma Multipurpose Bridge became visible with the installation of 150-metre first span on the pillars no 37 and 38 on 30 October 2017.

The 6.15-km bridge will have a total of 41 spans, each 150 meters long.

According to the engineers concerned, a total of 41 spans will be installed on 42 concrete pillars.
