footpath remains unnoticed

A part of this footpath on Kemal Ataturk Avenue in Banani has caved in a while back, yet it remains unnoticed by the authorities concerned. More bricks and slabs are coming apart day by day in other sections of the sidewalk as well. Delay in repair works would only make it more dangerous. The photo was taken recently. Photo: Anisur Rahman
