The eighth Bangladesh-China Friendship Bridge will be handed over to the Bangladesh government and inaugurated soon. The formal handover and inauguration of the bridge would take place soon, the CEAB said in a LinkedIn post on June 30. The 2.96-km bridge over the Kocha River is located 185km southwest of Dhaka in Pirojpur. As an important transportation hub project in southwestern Bangladesh, the completion of the eighth Bangladesh-China Friendship Bridge had established a connection between Khulna and Barisal divisions by land, the CEAB said. The CEAB hoped the bridge would also promote regional connectivity as well as the development of agriculture, industry, aquaculture, fishery and tourism in southern Bangladesh.
