NEWS: OVER 114 KM LONG TRAFFIC CONGESTION IN DHAKA-CHITTAGONG HIGHWAY

Till våra Kunder / To our Customers,

 

Se nedan information beträffande situationen i Bangladesh. Please see information below regarding the situation in Bangladesh.

 

******************************************************************************************************

Dear All,

 

Dhaka-Chittagong highway has been facing heavy traffic congestion for a week. The tailback once got as long as around 114 KM! The situation slightly improved lately (when traffic department worked very hard to ease the jam in the highway) but since the reason behind the tailback is some construction works, which will not complete before a month, hence it is highly likely that this congestion would persist accordingly. As a result of this congestion, cargo trucks are arriving Chittagong very late, missing the cutoffs and depots have already started experiencing heavy cargo backlog.

 

Please see related news.

 

FLYOVER CHOKES HIGHWAY TO CTG

HIGHLIGHTS:

As the tailback on Chittagong-Dhaka highway continued for the fifth consecutive day yesterday (May 13), suffering of the passengers and transport workers knew no bounds.

Businesses are also being hit hard by the congestion, which stretched around 114km from Sitakunda of Chittagong to Chouddagram of Comilla yesterday morning. 

The Dhaka-Chittagong highway, the busiest in the country, sees occasional tailbacks. But the ongoing congestion began on Wednesday after a portion of the four-lane highway was closed at Fatehpur of Feni for constructing a railway-overpass in the area, said Rafique Ahmed Mazumder, traffic inspector of Fauzderhat Highway Police outpost of Chittagong.

The situation improved slightly in the evening after the authorities started diverting the Chittagong-bound vehicles to an alternative route in Fatehpur.

“The communications minister has promised that the work would complete in 25 days…………………….

 

THE SUFFERING

Many transport workers were seen sleeping on the highway beside their vehicles, as bus passengers looked exhausted without food and sleep.

The tailback on Chittagong-Dhaka highway stretched around 114km from Sitakunda to Comilla yesterday. The traffic would not move an inch for hours on end, leaving passengers and transport workers exhausted without food and sleep. With nothing else to do, many transport workers, like this truck driver, were seen sleeping by their vehicles. The photo was taken near Mirsharai in Chittagong at 3:00pm yesterday.

BGMEA SEEKS SPECIAL TRAIN SERVICE

Mahbubul Alam, president of Chittagong Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said businesspeople, especially the importers and exporters, are greatly affected due to this tailback on highway.

“Chittagong-Dhaka highway is the lifeline of the country.... The traffic flow should be uninterrupted round the clock,” he told The Daily Star.

“Owners are continuously complaining to us. They are saying that their orders will be cancelled if they fail to ship their products because of the tailback. This is an unbearable situation,” he told The Daily Star yesterday.

He also demanded the government introduce a special train service on Dhaka-Chittagong route for passenger and cargo service for quick resolution to the impasse.

More than 80 percent of the goods-laden vehicles for export-import ply through the highway which is known as the economic lifeline of Bangladesh.
