Due to the Padma Bridge, people have been able to go home on Eid without any hindrance: Quader

Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader has said that people in the south-west have been able to go home on Eid without any hindrance due to the Padma Bridge.

Obaidul Quader made the remarks while exchanging post-Eid greetings at the meeting room of the Road Transport and Highways Department at the Secretariat on Tuesday.

The general secretary of Awami League said, this time the condition of roads was good everywhere during Eid. There was a problem with a route. That is the northern region. But that was not to be. What has happened is due to some management error or lack of coordination. However, due to the Padma Bridge, people in the south-west have been able to go home safely.

The Road Transport Minister said there were 43 accidents on the Bangabandhu Bridge in one day. As for the Padma Bridge, if there is a car accident, there is a place to move that car. But that place is not in Bangabandhu Bridge.

The bridge minister said, “Action will be taken in the future considering the places where there have been road defects this year.” Where there has been traffic jam, it has been due to some management error. The problem has become more on one route, Uttar Janapada. It wasn’t supposed to happen, because our six-lane road is already ready. ‘

Obaidul Quader said BGMEA-BKMEA had been repeatedly requested to give leave to the garment factories in phases. Traffic jam has occurred in Chandra-Nabinagar area next Thursday and Friday. The suffering is exacerbated by the sudden release of garment workers. Periodic holidays would not be a problem. They did not or could not do that.
