Rest houses will be constructed for drivers of highway vehicles, said the minister

Road Transport and Bridges Minister ObaidulQuader has said this Eid will be the most comfortable and relaxing in historybecause of the improvement of communication system in the country including Dhaka-Chittagong highway.

“Transport is reaching Comilla in one and a half hours, and in four hours to Chittagong,” the minister said on Sunday.

“Gazipur to Tangail-Mymensingh road has been upgraded to four-lane which will ease the suffering of the northern regions’ commuters.”

“The highway police had for a long time demanded to build monitoring centers and rest retreats. The awaited Highway Police Command and Monitoring Control Center was built in Meghna Toll Plaza.”

“They will be able to monitor the overall situation including highway traffic congestion from there.”

“The monitoring and command building for highway police will be constructed on all highways of the country in phases,” he said.

“Rest houses will be constructed for drivers of highway vehicles,” the minister said.
