Over years of operations there have been many cracks in the interior of box girders. And, with the passing of time, the problem of the cracks are reported to be more and more severe. This project was designed to strengthening the superstructure of the Bangabandhu Bridge. The construction started on May 24, 2015, and the construction period is one year.
