The Road and Bridge Ministry has ordered on Monday to stop the ongoing development projects on the highways in Gazipur temporarily from next Wednesday to ease the public movement during Eid-ul-Adha.
Mohammad Saifuddin, the executive engineer of the Gazipur Roads and Highways Department, confirmed the decision.
He said that two major development projects – the South Asia Subregional Economic Co-operation Road Connectivity Project (SASEC) and Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) – are currently underway on the highways of Gazipur.
“Emergency repair works will continue as usual, even though ongoing development works will be halted for Eid-ul-Adha,” said Mohammad Saifuddin.
The development works will be resumed normally after the Eid, he added.
