Bashundhara Bitumen to be used in Dhaka Elevated Expressway

Bashundhara Group will supply bitumen for the construction of the Dhaka Elevated Expressway.

The elevated expressway will connect Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport with Kutubkhali via Mohakhali, Tejgaon and Kamalapur of Dhaka.

Bashundhara Oil and Gas Company signed a deal with the joint venture company Shandong Hi-Speed Road and Bridge (SDRB) and Sinohydro in the capital Saturday.

SDRB-Sinohydro JV Deputy General Manager Lyu Jin said the company is taking Bashundhara Bitumen as the authorities already used Bashundhara Cement in the project.

Bashundhara produces 60-70 penetration grade bitumen, which is effective for use in national highways, internal roads, and bridges. Also, it is made for all kinds of conditions in all kinds of weather, according to a media statement.

The business conglomerate launched the country’s first bitumen plant in the private sector in February 2020 to cater to the growing demand in the domestic market.
