Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Saturday (Jul 28) inaugurated the Badda U-loop (North U-loop) under Hatirjheel integrated development project, which is expected to ease traffic movement. After the inauguration, the Prime Minister toured the U-loop in her vehicle, local media reports said.
This U-loop will ease vehicular movement from Pragati Sarani, Aftab Nagar and Rampura towards Malibagh area.
As part of the Hatirjheel integrated development project, there were plans to build two U-loops in Rampura and Badda areas to help passengers rid of the nagging traffic gridlock.
The U-loop in Rampura was opened on Jun 25, 2016.
With the Badda U-loop inauguration, the roads from Merul Badda to Kuril are now free from U-turns. The U-loop will contribute largely to easing traffic congestions the way the Rampura U-loop did, according to project officials.
Besides, vehicles bound for Rampura, Banasree or Aftabnagar can change their lanes easily.
