Annisul Huq rolls out plan to repair city roads

DHAKA : Amid the growing woes of commuters due to the shabby conditions of city roads, Mayor of Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) Annisul Huq on Tuesday said the potholes of the streets will be repaired within the next two months, reports UNB.
He came up with the assurance at a views-exchange arranged by DNCC on city law and order and traffic management at a city hotel.
Presiding over the function, Annisul said he directed his city corporation’s chief engineer to fix the small potholes within the next two months.
“But the large holes of the city streets will be repaired in phases,” he said adding that the roads in the city’s posh areas like Gulshan, Banani and Baridhara will be repaired by the next two years, while that of other city areas, including Mirpur, will be reconstructed by the next three years.
About the city’s law and order, the DNCC mayor said a control room will be set up at the city corporation alongside the police to provide security to people.
