The government has urged all to pay toll to cross the newly opened Padma Bridge.

“All citizens have to pay tolls, fixed by the government, for crossing the Padma Bridge. People are being asked to cross the bridge by paying tolls,” the Cabinet Division said in a notification issued today.

Stoppage of all kinds of vehicles, walking and taking pictures on the Padma Bridge are completely prohibited and punishable offense, the notification said.

The Cabinet Division has asked all to remain alert in following the restrictions.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina officially inaugurated the Padma Bridge on Saturday.
