Bangabandhu Bridge not under threat



The damage to the dam protecting Bangabandhu Bridge due to floodwaters is not posing any risk to the bridge, authorities have said. The Bridges Division said in a statement on Thursday the work to repair the damaged part of the dam was under way.  On Tuesday, a portion of the dam on the southeastern side of the bridge collapsed, raising fears that the bridge will also be harmed. The division said in the statement there is 'no possibility' that the bridge will be damaged due to the collapse of a portion of the 200-metre long dam, some two kilometres away and 800 metres from the guide bund. It urged the people not to 'panic', saying that bags were being put on the damaged part in an immediate effort to protect the dam.
