Traffic jam in Chittagong
These days traffic jam has become a daily affair in some streets of Chittagong. Every morning as I travel through the road from New Market to Karnaphuli bridge, I have to face severe gridlock on the way. Traveling by a 'tempo' is a hazardous proposition as you have to crouch for a long time. A bridge is under construction on the Syed Ashraf Ali road and so the commuters have to travel by an alternative route through the Fishery Ghat area. As morning is the time for fish trade, we have to face traffic congestion while crossing that area.
We hope the authorities will do something to alleviate the suffering of the commuters.
