Holidaymakers suffer due to tailback on both sides of Bangabandhu Bridge

Both sides of the highway on the Bangabandhu Bridge witnessed traffic congestion on Friday due to a rush of vehicles carrying home-bound passenger ahead of Eid.

Tailback extended for about 15 kilometres on the west side of Bangabandhu Bridge in Sirajganj, local sources said.

Md Mosaddek Hossain, officer-in-charge of Bangabandhu Bridge West police station, traffic was moving slowly but the situation was not that of a complete gridlock.

On the other hand, a 20 km tailback formed on from the eastern end of the bridge on Dhaka-Tangail highway due to heavy rush.

In addition to traffic and highway police, additional police forces have been deployed at various points on the highway to reduce traffic congestion, police said.
