Long tailback as expressway tolling slows traffic


Travellers have waited for hours in vehicles stuck in a tailback on Bangabandhu Expressway at Faridpur's Bhanga after the start of tolling. After an altercation between the travellers and officials, the authorities opened three more counters at 11am on Friday, reports bdnews24.com. The tolls for the expressway are exclusive of the tolls for the newly opened Padma Bridge, which is on the same Dhaka-Mawa-Bhanga route. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina inaugurated the expressway, the first in Bangladesh, on Mar 11, 2021, over a year before the Padma Bridge opened. The government has appointed Korea Expressway Corporation, a South Korean company, to oversee the Tk 110 billion expressway, collect tolls and operate its transportation system for five years.
