Kalurghat Bridge

A crater has formed on the Kalurghat Bridge in Chattogram yesterday. Built in 1931 over the Karnaphuli river, the bridge is riddled with potholes while its metal fencing and pedestrian decks have worn out in places, creating risks of accidents. Photo: Rajib Raihan

Traffic Violation

Ignoring a road sign, a bus stops at the ramp of the capital’s Mohakhali Flyover to pick up and drop off passengers, while a few other people jaywalk on the busy street yesterday.
