The Government of Bangladesh Roads and Highways Department carried out a programme of the replacement of 36 narrow, single-lane bridges in the west of Bangladesh.

Rendel was appointed by the Department of International Development to provide assistance and training to the Bangladeshi government on project management, including bridge selection and procurement of consultancy services for design and monitoring. We also advised on the implementation of agreed standards for design and construction and raising awareness in health and safety, labour welfare, environmental and social aspects of design and construction. In addition, Rendel provided quality assurance, preparation of project procedures and the monitoring of project performance and the financial control of DFID funding.
