Bridges & Structures

BCL is one of the pioneers in the field of bridge and structural engineering in Bangladesh. The professional engineers of BCL have designed and constructed various types of bridges both at home and abroad. The construction of bridges has been very important to connect villages, towns and cities isolated by innumerable rivers in this riverine country. Once ferry services were pre-dominant for crossing the big and small rivers. We can remember the eight giant ferry crossings around Dhaka surrounded by four major rivers.
