Government to build two more flyovers to ease Dhaka’s traffic jam
Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Thursday said the government has a plan to construct two more flyovers at Daur and Gabtoli points for reducing traffic gridlock in Dhaka. The government will develop Teromukh-Abdullahpur-Daur-Birulia-Gabtoli-Babubazar-Postogola-Fatullah-Chasara-Demra route under Dhaka Circular Route (part-2) surrounding the capital city and construct two flyovers at the Daur and Gabtoli points of the proposed route, he said. The minister said this while replying to a query placed by treasury bench member Nurjahan Begum of reserved seat 2 at in the parliament. The feasibility study and detail design of the flyovers are now underway, Obaidul said. In addition to this, a 700-meter-long flyover will be built at airport turning point on Banani-Jaydebpur highway under Greater Dhaka Sustainable Urban Transport Project and another 600-meter-long six-lane flyover will also be built at Jasimuddin turning point, the minister added. But no flyover will be built in the city under Road Transport and Highway division, he mentioned.
