Erosion has narrowed the 22km Barisal city-Banaripara road making it nearly impossible for two large vehicles to pass each other without colliding or veering off the road. If repair works are not started immediately, the upcoming monsoon will aggravate the situation and increase the likelihood of accidents. Already, the 12km narrow stretch of the road has witnessed four crashes in the last two months, in which more than six people were killed and 25-30 others were injured. The photo was taken in Durgasagar area of Banaripara upazila yesterday. Photo: Arifur Rahman
