Agartala, March 8 A bridge over Feni river in Tripura is set to turn the dream of the northeastern region into reality, as it would connect the landlocked region with the rest of the world through the Chittagong international sea port in Bangladesh.
On Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will virtually open the 1.888 km bridge, which is 72 km by road from the Chittagong sea port. The bridge has been built by India at a cost of around Rs 129 crore.
The double-lane Feni bridge, which would connect the border town of Sabroom in Tripura with Ramgarh in Bangladesh, would ease transportation of goods and heavy machineries to and from the northeastern states from various parts of the country and abroad using the Chittagong sea port, Kolkata port and other ports in India and Bangladesh.
The District Magistrate and Collector of southern Tripura, Debapriya Bardhan, told that the Prime Minister would dedicate the important bridge to the people virtually from Delhi on Tuesday.
