A decade ago it was an important road between Danga Bazar and Paikordi of Narsingdi. It was also useful for residents of Narayanganj as part of the road goes through this district. When two bypass roads were built as its alternatives, this one fell almost to disuse. So, neither authorities nor locals cared much about the road and its adjoining land.
The first thing a hospital must ensure is a clean environment where patients would be nursed back to their health. But the conditions in the admission wards of Narayanganj 300-Bed Hospital give a picture what is unbecoming of a health facility.
More than two decades back, it was the main route from Dhaka to Narayanganj. All passenger and freight vehicles used to ply this 12km road along the Buriganga river. Stretching from Postogola to Chasara, it is now known as the old Dhaka-Narayanganj road.
