The first ever flyover in Rajshahi city area is expected to be unveiled in December this year with a view to improving the city’s overall traffic system.
Construction work of the flyover, which is also being built for the first time in greater northern region of the country, is now in an advanced stage.
The 202.5-meter flyover along with a 120-meter ramp is being constructed at Budhpara Railway crossing with an estimated cost of Tk 29.28 crore.
The project is being implemented under the Tk 182.68 crore Rajshahi- Naogaon-Natore four-lane road construction project, which will establish a direct link between the people of East and West sides of the city.
Two construction firms from Dhaka are deployed for construction of the flyover.
It is expected that the existing scenario of the city will be changed side by side with improving the living condition and livelihood of the city people upon successful implementation of the uplift project.
