Teesta Railway Bridge is the third largest railway bridge of the country lengths about 2000 feet and constructed in the year 1834.
In 1978, to manage load of road vehicles for Lalmonirhat, Kurigram and beyond by ferry, the then president Ziaur Rahman instructed the Railway and Roads authority to set wooden sleepers in the rail bridge between the rails for all types of vehicular movement. Same year, March 4, President Ziaur Rahman inaugurated the bridge for vehicular movement. The bridge restores the communication from divisional headquarters of Rangpur with two districts, Lalmonirhat and Kurigram.
The bridge is now in broken-down condition and needs major repair. For motor vehicles construction of a road bridge began next to it in 2006 for completion by 2009 at a cost of Tk 1.22 billion which is now expected to be opened in June 2012.)  => Array ( [name] => Panam Bridge [post_id] => 11590 [post_link] => http://offroadbangladesh.com/places/panam-bridge/ [thumb_link] => http://offroadbangladesh.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/120-300x169.jpg [post_content] =>
Panam area is formed as a part of the Muslim metropolis, developed on the south of the old city, and perhaps constituted as the place of residence of the early Muslim governors'. After the Mughal conquest of Sonargaon (1611), the Panam area was connected with the ruling metropolis by construction of highways and bridges. Panam still possesses three brick bridges belonging to the Mughal period: Panam Bridge, Dalalpur Bridge and Panamnagar Bridge. The existence of these bridges and the canals enclosing the site on three sides is indicative of its being a suburban area of the medieval city.
Panam Bridge a fine old bridge constructed originally over a canal on a village road from Hajiganj to Baidyer Bazar, now located a little further to the east of Habibpur on a pucca road between Companyganj and Bari Majlis in Sonargaon. It was originally known as Companyganj ka Pul (কোম্পানিগঞ্জের পুল). The Bridge measuring about 53 meter in length and 5 metre in breadth consists of three arches, the middle arch being wider and higher providing easy passage of boats underneath. The steep roadway is formed of bricks circularly arranged. The architectural feature places the bridge to belong to the Mughal period (17th century).)  => Array ( [name] => Muktarpur Bridge [post_id] => 11760 [post_link] => http://offroadbangladesh.com/places/muktarpur-bridge/ [thumb_link] => http://offroadbangladesh.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/muktarpur-bridge-300x169.jpg [post_content] => The sixth Bangladesh-China friendship bridge over the river Dhaleswari (ধলেশ্বরী) that connects Narayanganj and Munshiganj district is another attractive place to visit at Munshiganj. This bridge is at muktarpur, all buses from Dhaka to Munshiganj used to give a stoppage at the base of the bridge.
Muktarpur bridge was opened for public at 18th February 2008, and it was opened by the Chief Advisor of Bangladesh Government, Mr. Fakhruddin Ahmed. Before the bridge was established , people of that particular area used to cross the river with trawler boats, and the vehicles through Ferry. After its construction, now a days, it’s no more require the Ferry transport, but still some people used to cross the river using boat. The bridge is not allowed to take any Rickshaw, that's why I think people are still using this route.
It takes around 15 minutes to cross the bridge. Even though you are there at summer season, but at the middle of the bridge, there’s always plenty of cool airs from the river, and that was enough to ease the hot from the sun. It’s a lovely place to enjoy your time. At Every moment, under the bridge, different types of water vehicles are passing. Some are bigger in size, some are smaller. Some boats are carrying goods, like sand, woods, etc. Some are trawler that carrying people to their destination. Also from the middle of the bridge, you can enjoy the beauty of the river Dhaleswari. At the both side of the bridge there are lovely scene to watch. The water of the river is clean. Not dirty like other rivers from Dhaka or Narayanganj area. You'll find lots of people are having baths at the bank of the river. There is a stair at the bridge where the river bank started. If you want, you can get down from the bridge using the stairs, and enjoy the beauty of the bridge under the bridge.)  => Array ( [name] => Mirkadim Bridge [post_id] => 8217 [post_link] => http://offroadbangladesh.com/places/mirkadim-bridge/ [thumb_link] => http://offroadbangladesh.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Mirkadim-Bridge-11-300x200.jpg [post_content] =>
Mirkadim bridge (মীরকাদিম ব্রিজ) spans the Mir Kadim canal (creek) which runs from Mir Kadim to Tangibari. It connects the village Abdullahpur and Panam area of Rampal Union Parishad under Munshigonj District. It is situated at a distance of about 5.50 km from the district headquarters. The local tradition claims it to have been built by King Ballal Sen, but the architectural features belie the local tradition. The bridge can architecturally be attributed to the Mughal period, not earlier than 17th century. The 53m long bridge consists of a central pointed arch of 4.40m span with two side arches of 2.25m span each. The central arch is 0.40m high from the water level of the creek and at present 31m wide. It is 6.15m wide with each wing measuring 16.80m in length. The central arch is flanked by an octagonal pilaster on each side. Similarly each of the side arches has a pilaster each crowned with a cupola. The plasters of the side arches rise above the spandrel of the arch but those of the central arch are shorter and so not reach the archivolt. The pier is 1.85m thick. It is reported that on either end of the bridge there were circular pillars but now these are buried under earth. It appears that there are 6 piers on each side of the bridge. The central arch is loftier and wider than the side ones and is set in a deep rectangular panel with plain plastered spandrel. Base of the arches provided with cut waters. The hump backed bridge rises to a central point from which its back gently slopes to either side. It has a 70 cm high parapet wall on either side. The surviving thickness of the bridge measures 4.34m.
It has been protected and repaired extensively by the Department of Archaeology.) )
