Traffic alert: Outbound passengers urged to start early for Dhaka airport

Authorities of Greater Dhaka Sustainable Urban Transport Project (BRT, Gazipur-Airport) has requested outbound passengers – going to Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport – to start early, between 6pm today and 6am Sunday.

A press release, signed by ASM Ilias Shah, project director, made the request to avoid possible traffic congestion during the abovementioned period.

Earlier on Wednesday, Dhaka Bus Rapid Transit Company Ltd authorities requested commuters in the capital not to use the route from Khilkhet through airport to Uttara during the same period.

The move came as traffic situation on the Dhaka Airport-Uttara route is expected to worsen due to development work of the BRT project.

Special road development work for the BRT project will be conducted in the Dhaka airport area during November 24 and 27, said a special traffic advisory signed by ASM Ilias Shah, project director of BRT.

Under the circumstances, all public and private vehicles were advised to avoid Dhaka Airport-Uttara route during this period.
