Zugverkehr ist erst im Jahe 1825   in Großbritanien erschienen. Dieser wurde in USA im Jahre 1833, in Deutschland 1835, in Italien 1839, in Spanien 1848 und in Bengal (Bangladesch) 1854 und in Sweden 1856 eingeführt. So in Sachen der Bahn-Technologie, die das Transportsystem der Welt revolutionised hat, Bangladesch war nicht weit entfernt von Europa und USA.

Pakshi Bridge (Brücke)

Pakshi Bridge is a steel railway bridge over the Padma(Fluss) located in Bangladesh. The bridge is 1.8 Kilometer long. Construction began in 1910, though it was proposed at least 20 years earlier. It took almost 2 years for it to be completed, and trains started moving on it in 1915.

Brief history

The construction of a railway Bridge over the Padma was proposed by Eastern Bengal Railway in 1889. It was discussed for more than twenty years before it was finally sanctioned for construction in 1908. 1902 a detailed project on the bridge was prepared. A technical committee appointed in 1906 reported that a bridge could be constructed at Sara crossing the lower Ganges (Fluss) between Paksey and Bheramara stations on the broad gauge railway from Khulna to Parbatipur. The construction of the bridge started in 1910 and finished in 1912. On the 1st of January 1915, the first trial train crossed the bridge down track and on 25 February of the same year the second trial train crossed the bridge up track. Finally on 4 March 1915 the bridge was inaugurated. A total of 24,000 people were employey for constructing the bridge.
