As the Dhaka-Chattogram highway is experiencing a horrible traffic jam due to work on a railway overpass in Feni, Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader today said the work will be completed in 25 days.
He came up with the disclosure while speaking at a press briefing at the Secretariat.
Quader said the railway overpass at Fatehpur, Feni is at the final stage. "Bangladesh Army has been tasked with the job and its chief himself is overseeing the work. The army chief has promised to complete the work before eid. They'll complete the entire work by the next 24-25 days."
Mentioning that the overpass has two lanes, he said one part will be opened on Tuesday which will help reduce the traffic jam.
The minister also said the homebound people will not have to go through sufferings during their Eid-ul-Fitr journeys.
He also blamed the traffic jam on the busy highway on the work on the Kanchpur, Meghna and Gomti bridges while addressing a press conference at his ministry office in Dhaka.
