DHAKA, Dec 20 (Reuters) - Bangladesh signed a deal with Britain's DP Rail on Tuesday to develop a $7.5 billion rail track, the biggest ever railway project in the country.
The 240 kilometre rail track will be developed between Dhaka and Payra port, a new deep sea port which is under construction.
DP Rail will finance the project railway minister Mujibul Haque told reporters after a Memorandum of Understanding was signed.
