Dapdapia Bridge over the Kirtankhola River, Bangladesh

The project involves the construction of a bridge at Dapdapia over the Kirtankhola River on the third kilometre of the Barisal-Patuakhali National Highway in southern Bangladesh. A preliminary design for the bridge has been selected and according to this design the proposed bridge will have a length of about 1,100 m with about 5 km-long approach roads. There will be a secondary bridge on the approach to the main bridge with a length of about 200 m.

The main bridge will have a 2 x 3.5 m carriageway with 1.25 m footpath on both sides. A number of culverts will also be required on the bridge approaches.
