Potholes on highway...

Although this is the lone highway connecting the capital with the division headquarter of Barisal, its dilapidated state might give a different impression. A large number of people use this 28-kilometre stretch of road between Jayashree and Bhurgata to get to Sher-e-Bangla Medical College Hospital every day. Riddled with at least 100 large potholes, the busy highway saw only minor repair work over the past four years. At least 50 people were injured in accidents last month due to its poor condition, said Gournadi Highway Police Sub-Inspector Ashok. Photo: Sushanta Ghosh
