As the age-old Kalurghat bridge on the Karnaphuli becomes too risky for large vehicles, the authorities are making arrangements for ferries to carry buses and lorries between the Chattogram city and Boalkhali upazila. The government will officially inaugurate three ferries at the end of this month.

Shopkeepers using fire extinguishers to douse a fire, caused by an electrical spark, on overhead cables on the footpath opposite the National Sport Council building in the capital’s Purana Paltan yesterday. The fire started around 7:00pm and was successfully put out within around half an hour, before fire service officials could make it to the scene.
Trucks illegally parked on Mayor Annisul Huq Road have narrowed the street outside the Tejgaon truck stand in the capital. The Dhaka North City Corporation had set up a separate lane for rickshaws and other non-motorised vehicles, but they cannot enter the lane due to the illegal parking. The photo was taken recently.
