2nd Bangabandhu Railway Bridge Gas Transmission Pipeline (also referred to as 2nd Bangabandhu Bridge (Railway Section) Gas Transmission Pipeline Project) is a proposed natural gas pipeline in Bangladesh.
The pipeline would run underneath the Bangabandhu Railway Bridge in Char Pathailkandi, Bangladesh.
- Operator: Gas Transmission Company Limited (GTLC)
- Parent Company: PetroBangla
- Length: 7.46 mi / 12 km
- Status: Proposed
- Start Year: 2023
The gas pipeline is part of a larger bridge construction project, announced in July of 2019. Under the project, a dedicated double track railway bridge (approximately 4.8 km) will be constructed over the River Jamuna, parallel to and approximately 300m upstream of the existing Bangabandhu Bridge. There will be a provision to include a gas transmission pipeline through the bridge. In September 2019 it was reported that the bridge project had gone four years without a contractor and was scheduled to be completed in 2023.
