Traffic congestion at Dhaleshwari Bridge

Traffic congestion stretching nearly eight kilometres on both ends of the Dhaleshwari Bridge on the Dhaka-Mawa route is causing severe suffering for homebound Eid vacationers.

The traffic congestion started around 8am on Tuesday.

Munshiganj assistant police superintendent Kamrul Islam blamed the management of the bridge’s toll collection. He told that “insufficient number of toll collectors and lack of their experience has created the backlog.”
