dhaka-chattogram highway

Vehicles and rickshaws make U-turns trough a gap in the median strip on Dhaka-Chattogram highway in the capital’s Matuail area yesterday. Locals created the gap by breaking part of the median strip to go to nearby lanes and by-lanes. This illegal activity slows down the traffic on the busy highway and also posing risk of accidents.

The BIWTA had knocked down

The BIWTA had knocked down illegal parts of these buildings on the Buriganga in the city’s Islambagh area over three months ago, but they are still occupied by people and that too without any repair. Such use of the buildings might put the occupants in harm’s way. The photo was taken yesterday. Photo: Rashed Shumon
