5-km tailback on Dhaka-Chattogram highway

Hundreds of passengers were suffering as a 5-kilometre long tailback was created on Dhaka-Chattogram highway in Daudkandi upazila of Cumilla on Saturday morning due to heavy pressure of vehicles ahead of Eid-ul-Azha.


Dhaka-bound passengers were suffering for the 5th successive day as the tailback on the highway continued since Tuesday last, according to travellers.


The tailback was seen stretching from Meghna-Gumti Bridge toll plaza to Shahidnagar, said Abul Kalam Azad, officer-in-charge of Daudkandi Highway Police Station.


The OC said there is a huge pressure of goods-laden vehicles on the highway and the situation will improve when the plying of such transports will be suspended on Sunday ahead of the Eid-ul-Azha.
