The Dhaka Metropolitan Police has issued traffic guidelines for city residents ahead of Victory Day. 

Public and private transportation have been asked to take detours when travelling from Dhaka to Savar, Aricha-Paturia to Dhaka, and Tangail to Dhaka between 3:30am and 9:30am on Sunday, December 16. 

The detours are necessary to accommodate high volume of traffic in the area, as the president, prime minister, and leaders of different organizations and political parties will visit the Jatiyo Sriti Shoudho.

As per DMP’s instructions, vehicle traffic will be restricted on the Gabtoli-Amin Bazar Bridge, and Savar-Nabinagar Road routes. The Dhaka Airport Road-Abdullahpur Crossing- Ashulia Road route may be used as an alternative.

Those who would travel from Aricha-Paturia to Dhaka through the Savar-Amin Bazar route should use the Nabinaga Bazar-Bayipile-Ashulia route to enter Dhaka instead.

On the other hand, those who would travel to Dhaka from Tangail through Ashulia should use the Kaliakair-Gazipur crossing-Tongi route.

Furthermore, the prime minister, other ministers, military personnel, diplomats, and eminent freedom fighters are also set to pay a visit to President Abdul Hamid at Bangabhaban on Sunday.

In order to ensure the safety and smooth movement of the officials visiting Bangabhaban, the use of all commercial vehicles will be restricted on the Zero Point-Gulistan Underpass- RAJUK Crossing route from 12pm until the end of the visits.

Vehicular movement will also be restricted from Ahad Box and the north side of Bangabhaban Park Road to Ittefaq, as well as from Alico Gap to Dilkusha commercial area and RAJUK Crossing.

Those wishing to travel from Shapla Chattar and Dainik Bangla to Gulistan via Rajuk Crossing have been urged to use alternative routes such as through Dainik Bangla, UBL Crossing, and the National Press Club. 

The movement of vehicles from Dainik Bangla to  RAJUK Crossing will also be restricted.
