Road Repair

Though asphalt should not be laid amid stagnant rainwater as it weakens the asphalt and cracks appear on the road within a few weeks, this group of workers do not seem to be bothered at all. Equipped with shovels and rakes, they were levelling the freshly laid asphalt on Dhaka-Chattogram Highway yesterday afternoon while a roller compacted the surface. The photo was taken in Colonel Hat area. Photo: Rajib Raihan

Bamboo Bridge

People cross a makeshift draw bridge over the Dafarara canal in Alokdia Vatchala area of Bagerhat. The approach road for the leaning concrete bridge was washed away in 2008, months after it was constructed. The bridge also started leaning around the same time. Photo: Partha Chakraborty
