RAJSHAHI: Rajshahi City Corporation (RCC) is going to construct five more flyovers aimed at freeing the metropolis from traffic congestion besides making the public life more vibrant.

Earlier, the city corporation has constructed a 202.5-meter flyover along with a 120-meter ramp at Budhpara Railway crossing with an estimated cost of Taka 29.28 crore for the first time in Rajshahi city.
