Construction work of Baradaha Bridge over Bangali river on Gaibandha-Nakaihat-Gobindaganj road in the district has been completed and it would be opened for vehicular movement very soon.According to sources the construction work of the much awaited bridge started in 1997 and the government allocated Taka 12.33 crore for the bridge.After building 3 spans the contractor stopped the construction work due to fund constraint and river bank erosion.In this situation, the officials of Roads and Highways (RHD) took a plan to construct a total of seven spans including additional two ones of 253.56- metre length and 24- metre wide bridge.After getting fund, the development work of the incomplete bridge resumed in December last after five years and it was going on in full swing at the direct supervision of the RHD officials, said sub divisional engineer of RHD ABM Khorshed Alam.The bridge would be opened for vehicular movement within short time and the locals would transport their perishable food items to the upazila headquarters quickly for sale, so the socio-economic condition of the farmers would be changed, he added.Executive engineer of RHD Mahbubul Alam Khan said all the construction work had already been completed.Minister of Road Transport and Bridges Obaidul Qader is likely to inaugurate the bridge for traffic movement within very short time, he added. -BSS, Gaibandha
