District, traffic and highway police are jointly working around 24 hours to ensure hassle-free travel of the Eid holidaymakers

Two days before the Eid-ul-Azha, there is no gridlock on the 27-kilometre portion of the Dhaka-Chittagong Highway in Feni despite a rush of the holidaymakers.

Vehicular movement was normal between this stretch throughout Sunday, even through a huge number of vehicles, mostly the long-route buses and cargo vehicles, were travelling between Dhamghat Bridge and Fatehpur Railway Overpass.

Traffic police were seen quickly sorting out congestions at some points of the highway as they took shape.

More than 200 members of district, traffic and highway police were working around 24 hours to ensure hassle-free travel of the Eid holidaymakers, officials said.

The district’s Superintendent of Police Jahangir Alam said that even though the number of vehicles on the highway increased on Sunday, there were no tailbacks.

People of the country’s south-eastern region, especially Chittagong division, had suffered immensely in gridlock at the Feni portion of the highway in the past few years due to the construction works of the four-lane project, Fatehpur overpass and Mohipal flyover.

But that nightmarish situation ended after all of these projects were completed and opened to traffic recently.

Police have also beefed up security along the highway to prevent untoward incidents and ensure safe travels of the vacationers.
