How to get on, off the elevated expressway
A part of the country's first ever elevated expressway is open to traffic since this morning.

The Tejgaon-Bijoy Sarani overpass has been connected to the expressway through two ramps, both for entering the expressway.
One ramp is for vehicles heading towards Tejgaon, and the other for those going towards Bijoy Sarani.
There is another entry to the expressway in front of Banani Rail Station.
The expressway has an exit on Indira Road at Farmgate.
There are entries at Kawla near Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport, Progoti Sarani, and in front of the Army Golf Club on Airport Road.
There are exits on Kemal Ataturk Avenue at Banani and near Mohakhali Bus Terminal.
Two- and three-wheelers are not allowed on the expressway.
Cars, SUVs, microbuses with fewer than 16 seats, and trucks with a capacity of less than 3 tonnes will pay Tk 80 for using the expressway.
Trucks with six wheels will pay Tk 320, those with more than six wheels Tk 400, and buses with 16 or more seats Tk 160.
