Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina laid the foundation stones of the two bridges and Shaheed Sheikh Russel Bridge across three rivers on 72-km-long Patuakhali-Kuakata road on February 25 in 2012, said RHD sources.
On August 20 last year, the PM formally opened the 408.36-metre-long and 10.25-metre-wide Shaheed Sheikh Russel Bridge on the Shibbaria River at Mohipur point on Patuakhali-Kuakata road.
The three bridges are named after Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman's three sons, also brothers of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
Construction works of the 482.37-metre-long and 10.25-metre-wide Shaheed Sheikh Jamal Bridge on the Sonatala River at Hazipur point and 891.76-metre-long and 10.25-metre-wide Shaheed Sheikh Kamal Bridge on the Andharmanik River near Kalapara upazila town were completed in December last year.
Tourism as well as economic activities will see a boost after opening of the two bridges for vehicular movement, said Md Shafiqur Rahman Chan Mia, president of Kuakata hotel-motel owners association, also former president of Patuakhali Chamber of Commerce and Industries.
