Construction of the country's first six-lane flyover, on the Dhaka-Chittagong highway at Mohipal in Feni, is in full swing with 75% of the work completed, an official concerned said.
The official added that the construction work for the flyover would be completed before its scheduled date in early 2018, reported BSS.
The 660-meter flyover is being constructed at a cost of Tk157.99 crore, to ease traffic congestion on the Dhaka-Chittagong Highway and help reduce the suffering of commuters in adjoining areas.
Mohipal stands at a major intersection on the Dhaka-Chittagong highway. The intersection connects Dhaka on the north, Chittagong on the south, Feni on the east and Noakhali, Laksmipur and Chandpur on the west.
Abdul Monem Limited, under the 19th Engineer Construction of Bangladesh Army, is constructing the flyover. The main structure of the flyover will be 370 meters long, with two 145m ramps for movement of regional motor vehicles.
