Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the ‘Maitri Setu’ — a bridge built over the Feni River — between India and Bangladesh on March 9. The prime minister will inaugurate the bridge at 12.00 pm via video conferencing, the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) said in a statement.

The 1.9-kilometer bridge connects Sabroom in India with Ramgarh in Bangladesh. The bridge has been built over the Feni River which flows between the Indian boundary in Tripura and Bangladesh.

The name ‘Maitri Setu’ is meant to symbolize growing bilateral relations and friendly ties between India and Bangladesh, the PMO said.

The construction was taken up by the National Highways and Infrastructure Development Corporation Ltd. at a project cost of Rs 133 crore, according to a statement released by the PMO.

It is poised to herald a new chapter for trade and people to people movement between India and Bangladesh, the PMO said.
