Keane Bridge

This Keane Bridge is located across the River Surma on the gateway to Sylhet. In the thirties of 20th century the then Governor of Assam province Michael Keane visited Sylhet, and in order to keep the memory of his visit unfading, this iron bridge was made in 1936.  At that time, the necessity of the construction of the bridge arose as a   means of communication of trains with Assam. The length of the bridge is 1150ft and width is 18ft. During the liberation war in 1971, one part of the north side of the bridge was damaged and after achieving independence that damaged part was restored with wood and bailey parts. In 1977, with the initiative of Bangladesh Railway, the damaged part of the bridge was repaired again with concrete.
