 Traffic Jam in Dhaka City

Safin, / Staff reporter, The Daily Star, Mirpur, Dhaka, December 13, 2018:   Over the last few years, the transportation problem of Dhaka City has visibly been deteriorating steadily. Citizens constantly complain about the unbearable problem of a traffic jam. Traffic jam makes movement difficult or impossible. It is a very common sight in Dhaka City. It generally occurs at the crossing of roads during busy hours of the day. It causes great suffering to the ambulance carrying dying patients and the fire brigade vehicles. It kills our valuable time and hampers our work. But nowadays, it has taken a very terrible shape. It is increasing day by day. The causes of traffic congestion in Dhaka city are multifarious. Starting from the city itself, it is observed that the skeleton, structure, and layout of Dhaka City are not well-planned and well-directed. A traffic jam can be controlled by adopting some measures. Improved traffic signaling, building spacious roads, foot-over bridges and flyovers, underpasses and public awareness can dispel this curse. It is a matter of joy that the present Govt. has taken some pragmatic steps to solve this problem as soon as possible.
