RSTP: Two bus rapid transit routes
111 This would have dedicated lanes for buses on existing road eliminating the current situation faced with buses in Dhaka. Around 25,000 people are expected to commute on the BRT on both sides of the lane per hour with buses scheduled to arrive every three minutes. The government has already began construction of the first BRT line called Line 3 to be built between Gazipur to Dhaka’s Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport and eventually be extended to Keraniganj’s Jhilmil Residential Area. Total distance of the route is 42 kilometre and is said to reduce the commute to 20 minutes from Gazipur to Dhaka airport. RSTP suggests  25 stops, six flyovers, an eight lane bridge over the Turag River at Tongi and a 4.5 kilometre elevated road from Tongi to Uttara from Shibbari-Airport route. The total cost of the project is estimated at Tk2,040 crore. The Asian Development Bank is said to donate Tk1,280 crore, the French Development Agency Tk360 crore and the Global Environmental Facility Tk36 crore and the rest will be funded by the government. Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader said: “The detailed design is almost complete and hopefully the World Bank will agreed to finance the BRT from Dhaka airport to Jhilmil.” The BRT line 7 will be to completed by 2035.
