FY 17-18: 12kms flyover for Dhaka dwellers

Driver testing centre in each divisional city

To ease traffic congestion in two of the mega cities of the country, Finance Minister AMA Muhith has proposed an initiative to construct a flyover for Dhaka and an elevated expressway for Chittagong.

The 12 kilometre-flyover from Shantinagar to Dhaka-Mawa road would be built to ease traffic congestion of the capital city, Finance Minister AMA Muhith said in his budget speech of FY 17-18.

The minister also unveiled plans for a 16 km-long elevated expressway from Lalkhan Bazar to Shah Amanat Airport in Chittagong.

“Given that there is no alternative to improved institutional training for drivers for easing traffic congestion and preventing road accidents, we have planned to establish one new Driver Testing and Training Centre in each divisional city,” the minister said.
