Dhaka North City Corporation

Dhaka North City Corporation has been working on this spot on Ring Road near Shyamoli for close to two months. In addition to the disruption it’s causing to a busy road, the way this gaping hole is kept -- exposed, with rods sticking out -- may lead to some serious injuries, especially at the onset of the rainfall of the last couple of days. This photo was taken recently. PHOTO: Rashed Shumon
