Damaged roads to be repaired before Eid: Quader


PV Desk : Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader today said all damaged roads and highways will be readied before holy Eid-ul-Azha for smooth traffic of the homebound passengers.

“Currently 23 points of different national and regional highways from one to three kilometer are under flood water. The flood water wiped away some 18 points of northern roads and highways,” he told this emerging from an emergency meeting on flood and its damage and Eid preparation at his ministry’s conference room here.

The minister said repair works are now going on day-night aimed at keeping the roads and the highways for vehicle movement during the Eid.

He hoped that all the damaged roads and highways would be repaired before the Eid for movement of motor vehicles if the rain comes again to disrupt the repair work. “There is no scope of setting up cattle market on or adjacent to the highways and cattle will not be allowed to transport on vehicles without fitness certificates.”
