Bus Rapid Transport project

WB to fund $ 250m

BSS

The World Bank has expressed its desire to finance the Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) project as it has been designed to help smooth journey between Gazipur and Dhaka Airport which would take only 20 minutes, reports BSS.
Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader said this to the journalists after a meeting with the World Bank representative led by acting World Bank country director Rajsree Palongkar at the conference room of his office in the capital yesterday.
"We have asked the concerned authority to start the project work soon as the World Bank is agreed to finance US$ 250 million for implementing the project initially up to Mahakhali," said the minister. The World Bank three years ago agreed to finance the BRT project between Jhilmill to Dhaka airport which was later shelved.
But now the World Bank wants to involve with the development works and wants to implement the project in three phases, said the minister. The buses will run on a dedicated lane on the existing six-lane highway under the BRT project where there will be no traffic jam; the buses will ply one by one. BRT transport system has already been famous in other cities including Chicago and New Delhi.
The BRT project is divided in two parts: one from Gazipur's Shibbari to Dhaka's Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport, and the other from the airport to Keraniganj.
