Agartala, Aug 2: If everything falls in right place, construction work of Feni bridge which will connective two sides of Indo-Bangla border in Sabroom subdivision would be completed by December this year, according to sources.

The construction company has already set a target of December 25 as completion date as extra manpower has been inducted at the construction site. As of now, 70 percent of bridge work has been completed.

The bridge is seen as strategic because it will connect Sabroom with Bangladesh's Ramgarh Upazilla in Chittagong. Once the bridge is constructed then the state will have direct access to Chittaong port in Bangaldesh because the distance is only 72 km.

As India and Bangladesh has already signed on waterways, a cargo consignment has already been taken from Haldia to Akhaura ICP via Chittagong port. If Feni bridge is made operational, the cargo movement could happen directly from Haldia to Sabroom via Chittagong port. There is no need to bring the consignment from Chittagong to Akhaura which covers around 200 km distance.

Even as the Feni bridge project was initiated in the Manik Sarkar regime, the work has gained pace once the BJP led government assumed power in the year 2018. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb have been keen on speedy completion of bridge work because to its utility to boost trade, business and industries.
