Through this, Shariatpur and Madaripur districts will be connected with Lauhjong of Munshiganj. As a result, the South-West part of the country will be connected with the North-East part. For a developing country like Bangladesh, Padma Bridge is going to be one of the most challenging construction projects in its history. The two-story steel and concrete truss bridge will have a four-lane roadway on the upper level and a single rail track on the lower level. In the Padma-Brahmaputra-Meghna river basin, 41 spans of 150 m length have already been laid, the largest bridge in the country is under construction with a length of 6.150 km and a width of 18.10 m.

In 2013, the strategic transport plan was formulated to reduce the increasing traffic problems and traffic congestion in the overpopulated Dhaka metropolis, under which the metro rail was planned for the first time in Dhaka. Later, according to the revised strategic transport plan made in 2016, the number of metro rail lines to be built in Dhaka was increased from 3 to 5. The 20.1 km long MRT Line 6 from Uttara to Motijheel was selected for construction in the first phase. On 26 June 2016, the construction work of MRT Line-6 started with the inauguration ceremony.
