Local Government and Rural Development (LGRD) Minister Engineer Khandkar Mosharraf Hossain inaugurated Karwan Bazar-FDC section of the Eskaton-Moghbazar-Satrasta-Malibagh-Mouchak flyover on Wednesday morning.

Project Director Sushanta Kumar Paul has said the minister opened the 450-metre portion of the flyover at 10am.

The Tk 850 million Karwan Bazar-FDC flyover is a major part of the Tk 12.18 billion (Tk 1,218.9 crore) Moghbazar-Eskaton-Tejgaon Satrasta-Kakrail-Rajarbagh-Malibagh-Mouchak-Rampura-Holy Family Flyover Project which was designed to connect a vast area of Dhaka city to a fast moving road infrastructure system.

The 450 metre-long two-lane elevated carriageway is expected to ease traffic from Sonargaon intersection-Karwan Bazar to Heerajheel, FDC Level Crossing, Hatirjheel, Old Tongi Diversion Road to Moghbazar intersection.

On March 30 last year, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina inaugurated the 2.1 kilometre-long Holy Family-Satrasta section of the Eskaton-Malibagh-Mouchak-Tejgaon Satrasta-Moghbazar-Rajarbagh flyover for traffic.

The project was approved by the Executive Committee of the National Economic Council (ECNEC) in 2011 and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina laid the foundation stone of the project on February 16, 2013.
