No respite from Dhaka-Mymensingh-Tangail highway tailbacks

Vehicles were seen moving slowly on Dhaka-Mymensingh and Dhaka-Tangail highways on Friday following rush of home-bound people ahead of Eid-ul-Azha, creating suffering to people.

 

According to highway police, the number of passenger vehicles and good-laden started to increase from early morning which created the traffic jam.

 

A 15-km tailback was created in Tongi, Cherag Ali, College Gate, Gazipura, Borobari, Board bazar and adjoining areas on Dhaka-Mymensingh highway.

 

Overtaking tendency of the drivers is a reason behind the traffic gridlock, said highway police.

 

Additional traffic police have been deployed at different points.

 

Besides, a 10-km traffic tailback has been created from Kharajora to Chandra and adjoining areas on Dhaka-Tangail highway as the number of cattle-laden vehicles has increased on the highway.
