Moghbazar-Mouchak flyover

ALMOST every time we proceed towards Bangla Motor signal from Janakantha Bhaban area at New Eskaton on our way to BIRDEM Hospital or Bashundhara City Shopping Complex or Eastern Plaza by rickshaw or CNG auto or by car, we are to wait for manually operated signals for about 20 to 30 minutes because of VIP road. It is unfortunate that most of the digital traffic signals are either out of order or not in operation. Thus traffic jam spreads across from Bangla Motor to Moghbazar crossing or beyond. When the Moghbazar-Eskaton flyover will be formally opened for traffic, dozens of automobiles will be stranded at New Eskaton on their way to Sonargaon or Hatirpool area. It is therefore essential that the flyover be relocated by extending it up to Kazi Nazrul Islam Avenue as a traffic disaster may happen any time. The Minister for Road Transport and Bridges visited this under-construction site several times and the problems involved are best known to him. So the real state of affairs should be recognised before it is too late. Let the flyover in question not be a trouble spot.
