BSS

The construction and dredging works of Bahadurabad of Jamalpur and Balasighat of Gaibandha will be inaugurated on March 3, reports BSS.

This was disclosed at a meeting on ‘Development, Finance and Administration of BIWTA’ at the shipping ministry with shipping minister Shahjahan Khan in the chair.

The main purpose of the dredging is to ease traffic congestion on Bangabandhu Bridge, speedy vehicular movement on the bridge and ensure smooth travel of ferries between Bahadurabad and Balasighat for the northern region passengers. Acting secretary to the ministry Mohammad Abdus Samad and BIWTA members Mohammad Nurul Amin and Mohammad Shahidul Islam were present in the meeting. The meeting was informed that BIWTA has continued the eviction process of illegal settlements on river banks.

A total of 480.2 acres of land was recovered after evicting 7,919 illegal installations from river bank areas from Dhaka to Narayanganj river port from April 2010 to December 2017.
