BRT project: DMP urges Dhaka airport-bound passengers to start early
Due to traffic gridlock caused by an ongoing Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project of the Bangladesh Road Transport Authority, police have requested Dhaka airport-bound passengers to leave their homes early so that they can arrive on time.
Traffic (Uttara Division) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) urged the passengers to do so as the work of the project has narrowed the road on the way to Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport.
DMP Joint Commissioner (Traffic North) Abu Saleh Md Raihan said the vehicular movement has been suspended in three lanes of the road, leading to heavy congestion. So, airport-bound passengers need to start from their homes ahead of time.
"As the road has been separated into two, passengers need to stick to the left lane after passing Le Méridien Dhaka and Kawla. Those travelling from Khilkhet to Uttara or Gazipur need to head out early," he added.
