Update : 06 Mar 2015, 08:18 PM

The long-delayed construction work of the four-lane Dhaka-Mymensingh highway is expected to be completed within June this year.

Already 96 percent of the work has been completed.

The Mawna flyover, built at a cost of Tk 70 crore, at Sripur Chourasta will also be open to traffic on the first week of April.

Providing the updates on the work, Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader said the government was overseeing the project on a priority basis.

“I have visited all the four projects related to the highway upgrade today. The Joydevpur to Bhaluka package under the Bangladesh Army will be done within May. They have finished 76 percent of the work,” the minister said this while addressing the journalists after visiting the Mawna flyover at Sripur yesterday.

He further said the rest of the packages will also be completed within May. 

Commenting on the BNP’s on going political programmes, Obaidul Quader said: “Those who call hartal are not enforcing it themselves. But instead they are resorting to petrol bombs just to tarnish the country’s image.” 

Director of the four lane project Hafizur Rahman, Additional Chief Engineer of Road and Highways Aftab Ahmed Khan, Additional Chief Engineer of Mymensingh zone Sahab Uddin Khan, Major Tamim of Army Engineering Corps, UNO of Sripur Mohammad Sadekur Rahman and OC of Mawna Highway police station Sanwar Hossain were present among others during the visit of the minister.
