Mayor Mohammad Hanif Flyover

“As soon as we can remove and transfer all the utility lines, the construction work of the flyover would be accomplished by December 2012 and the required equipments are also being procured to start the work,” said the state minister.

Infrastructure development is one of the top priorities of a country's economic progress. Planned and well connected infrastructure services attract foreign direct investments and boost local investments. To meet the present and future demand for infrastructure development, developing and least developed countries like Bangladesh always face scarcity of their own resources. Therefore, to accelerate infrastructure development, the Government has encouraged private sector participation in infrastructure projects. The first such project is the Jatrabari-Gulistan Flyover project in Dhaka.

The construction work of the flyover was, earlier, expected to be completed by June 2013 as per the project proposal, but today’s meeting decided to complete it by December 2012.This long expected 9 km long four lane wide mega structure will not only mitigate the congestions of traffics but also will be beneficial for the economic development of the country. This would be a breakthrough-structure with state-of-the-art architecture and would be its own kind in Bangladesh.
