It resumed after traffic was suspended for 2hrs due to glitch in toll process
Traffic has resumed on the Bangabandhu Bridge after two hours of being suspended as the toll system became dysfunctional.
The toll collection process was halted on both sides of the bridge from 10am to 12pm on Sunday.
Due to which, a 10-kilometre long tailback was formed on both sides of the bridge since 10am, putting hundreds of passengers in untold sufferings.
Bangabandhu Bridge East police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Mosharrof Hossain confirmed the matter to the Dhaka Tribune.
“Although we are appointed in toll collection, the toll is being collected by the system of a contracting company Commuter System Network (CNS). Toll collection was halted following a glitch in the toll system,” Bangladesh Bridge Authority’s Supervising Engineer of Bangabandhu Bridge Tofazzal Hossain said.
However, he said instructions have been given to collect the toll manually later.
