The bypass would make connections between Dhaka, Gazipur, and Narayanganj much more convenient

There is no doubt that traffic jams remain one of the biggest barriers to Bangladesh’s economic prosperity, adding a literal roadblock on our path to progress.

To that end, the completion of the Dhaka Bypass expressway -- a four-lane expressway involving roads from Bogra, Joydevpur, and Madanpur -- could go a long way towards alleviating the issue of the oftentimes horrendous gridlock that plagues the nation’s roads.

The bypass would make connections between Dhaka, Gazipur, and Narayanganj much more convenient, making the lives of countless people that much easier and increasing the efficiency of the economy greatly throughout the nation as a result.

As the the company in charge of the project has said, the expressway will not only connect Bangladesh’s major highways, it would also establish much-needed links between the industrial belts and Chittagong port.

To that end, the potential of the project remains undeniable.

However, there are certain issues which need to be addressed. For one, a major problem remains the lack of availability of space for the construction of the road itself, and we hope authorities consider this obstacle as part of the project’s long-term goals.

Additionally, the $412 million project is slated to be completed in 2022, and we hope the government moves ahead with the efficiency and efficacy that the Bangladeshi people deserve, and urge authorities not to dillydally regarding its completion and keep corruption under check.

It is imperative that the funds for this project not find their way into the coffers of corrupt bureaucrats -- a common occurrence when it comes to government projects.

The Dhaka Bypass expressway can revolutionize the way Bangladeshis go from point A to point B. Let us work towards ensuring that that dream becomes a reality.
