WCN Editorial Team 5 Apr 2016 ASIA TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE

The Bangladesh Bridge Authority (BBA), a wing of the Road Transport and Bridges Ministry of Bangladesh, plans to build four underground railways across Dhaka in a bid to mitigate traffic congestion.

The cost of the first two railways is estimated to be $8.14bn.

According to the proposal, a 32km-long subway will connect Sayedabad with Tongi, via Airport, Banani, Mohakhali, Moghbazar, Paltan and Motijheel, at a cost of $5.265bn. It will later be extended to Arranging. The second subway, totalling a distance of 16km, will connect Aminbazar with Sayedabad. The proposed route will go through Gabtoli to Shyamoli, Asadgate, Newmarket, Tsc and Motijheel and will cost $2.87bn.

Planning for the third and fourth routes is still in a development stage. These will connect Gabtoli with Sadarghat, and Rampura with Sadarghat, respectively.
