Ensuring safe roads now biggest challenge, says Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader

Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Thursday said about 450 kilometres of highways have been upgraded to four-lane across the country in the last 12 years.

“In the last 12 years, around 450km highways were upgraded to four-lane across the country and works continue to upgrade another 450km to four-lane,” he said.

Quader, also the Awami League general secretary, revealed this information while speaking at a discussion on the 8th Five-Year Plan through videoconferencing from his official residence.

He said the Road Transport and Bridges Ministry is not the only entity involved in the implementation of safe roads, various other ministries and agencies are involved in this process as well.

The issue of coordination among all stakeholders in ensuring safe roads should clearly be brought into the planning documents, said the minister.

He said: “Now road accidents are the biggest concern for us and ensuring safe roads is the biggest challenge too.”
