Long tailbacks were also seen on Dhaka-Tangail Highway

Vehicles have been seen moving slowly on Dhaka-Mymensingh Highway as a large number of vehicles left the capital on Friday morning for various destinations of the country ahead of Eid-ul-Azha.

Similar scenario with long tailbacks in some places were also seen on Dhaka-Tangail Highway since Friday morning. 

Police said vehicles carrying the home-bound people are moving slowly at Chandana intersection, Board Bazar, Gazipur intersection and Tongi due to heavy pressure of vehicles.

Besides, drivers are driving their vehicles relatively at lower speed due to the potholes caused by the ongoing construction works of Bangladesh Road Transport Authority.

Highway police, metropolitan police, community police and volunteers from city corporation are working to maintain discipline on the highway.

Although the three-day holiday for Eid will begin Sunday, a large number of people left the capital Friday taking the advantage of weekly holiday.

The Eid-ul-Azha is scheduled to be celebrated on August 12.
