An increased load of homebound travellers saw traffic move at a snail's pace from Elenga to the eastern end of the Bangabandhu Bridge over the last few days following the lifting of lockdown restrictions ahead of the Eid holidays.

“The lingering traffic finally eased around 8am on Wednesday, much to the relief of the frustrated homebound passengers,” said Tangail traffic police Sub-Inspector Abul Kalam. 

“However, there is still pressure on the North Bengal route for cattle trucks,” he added.
