Besides, the terminal will be shifted to another place to facilitate the movement of city passengers here,” he said.The mayor came up with the remarks at a view exchange meeting with bus owners and workers at Mohakhali Bus Terminal in the capital.
Atiqul Islam exchanged views with them to find out the ways to reduce traffic congestion in the areas adjacent to the terminal.
Terming the establishment of the inter-district bus terminal in the heart of the capital as a mistake, the mayor said, “City dwellers are complaining to me about the traffic jam, intensified due to the terminal. Therefore, the terminal will be shifted from here. I don’t want to see roadside parking of buses beside the terminal.”
