40km Elevated Expressway: Govt moves to link highways

The government plans to build a nearly 40km elevated expressway from Hemayetpur in Savar to Madanpur in Narayanganj for creating a vital link between major highways. The East-West Elevated Expressway would allow traffic to switch highways and skip the congested streets of the capital. Vehicles on Dhaka-Aricha highway would be able to speed towards the Dhaka-Chittagong highway with options to go in the direction of Mawa and Sylhet.
