New project director appointed for Bahaddarhat flyover

Chittagong Development Authority (CDA) yesterday appointed a project director temporarily to lead the work of Bahaddarhat Flyover project.
CDA Chairman Abdus Salam appointed Kazi Hasan Bin Shams, superintendent engineer -1 of CDA.
Shams got the appointment following suspension of Habibur Rahman, who was suspended on Monday following the collapse of the flyover.
The newly appointed project director told The Daily Star that he had sent a letter to the authority saying he was unable to accept the post as he was physically unfit, but his appeal was rejected.
Shams said he only accepted the post on the condition that he would just look after the safety measures of the project and not deal with financial issues.
However, Nasir Uddin Mahmud Chowdhury, CDA chief engineer, denied receiving any letter from Shams and said as government staff they are bound to comply with any order from the state.
At least 12 people died and 50 were injured when three girders of the flyover collapsed on Saturday.
