damaged during monsoon

As in the case of most other roads, this road near Postogola Fire Station also became damaged during this monsoon as it lacks a proper drainage system. A large amount of money on frequent repair works could be saved if the authorities ensured a functioning drainage for every road. The photo was taken yesterday. Photo: Firoz Ahmed

life at risk

A rickshaw puller tries to cross the Dhaka-Chittagong highway through an unauthorised opening of the road divider, putting his life at risk as speedy and heavy vehicles like buses and trucks ply this busy thoroughfare. To cut short their travel, pedestrians, bikers and rickshaws often use such gaps created after the road dividers are breached, making the spots prone to accidents. The photo was taken yesterday.
