A quarter of Ctg city road battered by rains
The mayor of Chittagong City Corporation (CCC) has described the perennial flooding of the port city as a “solvable problem” after estimating that at least one in four roads had been washed away by the latest torrential downpours. Mayor AJM Nasir Uddin told a press conference at KB Abdus Sattar Auditorium on Monday that as many as 15 roads – totaling 57km in length – have been badly damaged, and that the extent of the loss would stand up to Tk500 crore. “I am not sitting idle. I am trying my level best to address the problem,” he said. “A good number of projects have already been undertaken to bring the perennial water-logging of city down to a tolerable limit.” The city corporation had spent Tk16 crore in the last financial year for the excavation of canals and drains of the city. The CCC mayor also informed that they had already floated a tender of Tk18 crore for clearing waste and garbage from the canals. “The project for excavating a new canal from Bahaddarhat Baraipara to the Karnaphuli river is underway. Recently the ministry has allocated Tk 60 crore for acquiring land for a canal 2.97km long by 65 feet wide,” he added.
