The lane will be used for Dhaka-bound vehicles from Chittagong, the correspondent said.

The Dhaka-Chittagong highway, one of the busiest in the country, suffered from tailbacks owing to the construction of Fatehpur Railway Overpass.

The highway was completely gridlocked from Wednesday after a portion of the four-lane highway was closed at Fatehpur of Feni for constructing a railway-overpass in the area. 

The tailback finally eased yesterday as motorists were diverted to alternative routes around an 800-metre stretch of road in Fatehpur, where the construction work of a flyover is going on.
