Vehicles moving slowly on Dhaka-Tangail highway

Pressure of huge number of vehicles carrying Eid holidaymakers has increased on the country’s highways including the Dhaka-Tangail-Bangabandhu bridge highway.

Hundreds of vehicles with passengers are moving very slowly from Bangabandhu bridge’s east part to Pouli area of Kalihati from early Friday.

Thousands of homebound people started leaving the capital Dhaka from Thursday noon.

Many of the homebound left Dhaka on Thursday afternoon after attending their respective offices as it was the last working day ahead of Eid-ul-Fitr. All garment factories declared close from Thursday.

Traffic Police Inspector Eshrajul Haq said the traffic congestion on the highway has increased but there is no tailback on the highway.

Police said all measures have been taken to ensure the movement of people smoothly with security.
