A number of much-needed zebra crossings and speed breakers will be established at different areas within the Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) in the shortest time possible, Chief Executive Officer of DNCC Md Mesbahul Islam said.

He made the statement Wednesday at a program held to set up a zebra crossing on the Airport Road in front of Shaheed Ramiz Uddin Cantonment College.
