Padma Bridge: Lamp post installation work begins

Padma Bridge: Lamp post installation work begins

Eight lamp posts were installed on Padma Bridge on Thursday after bringing those from China.

The steel-made structures of the lamp posts were set up between the viaduct pillars at the Mawa end (Munshiganj) at about 1:00pm.

Dewan Md Abdul Quader, executive engineer of the Padma Multipurpose Bridge Project, confirmed it.

He said the structures were brought from China. The structures of 95 lamp posts were brought at Mawa Construction Yard of Padma Bridge by road from the Chattogram Seaport about 15 days ago.

Quader also said a total of 416 lamp posts would be installed on the bridge and viaducts. Of these, 328 will be installed on the main bridge and 88 will be on the viaducts of both sides. Each lamp post weighs 275 kg and a 175w LED bulb will be installed on each once the electric connection is given to the bridge.

The length of each lamp post is 11.2m while the distance between one lamp post to another is 37.5m.

He said it would require one and a half months to two months to install all the lamp posts if 10 lamp posts are installed every day.

Carpeting work on the main structure of the Padma Bridge began on November 10. The progress of the main bridge is now at around 95% while progress of river training work is 87%.

Cabinet Secretary Khandker Anwarul Islam said on November 23 that the Padma Bridge is expected to open for traffic around June 30 next year.
