RAJSHAHI – Rajshahi City Corporation (RCC) has started constructing speed breakers on the busy streets in front of the educational institutions in the city aiming at freeing those from road traffic accidents.

“We will construct 26 speed breakers at 13 critical points in the metropolis and we have already started the works,” said Ashraful Haque, chief engineer of RCC.

He said the initiative will help to avert road accidents in front of the city’s educational institutions and the students can also cross the roads safely.

“We are expecting that the construction works will be completed as soon as possible,” said Engineer Shahabuddin of the appointed contractor farm. Quality of works will be maintained, he added.

Professor Taifur Rahman, Principal of Rajshahi Education Board Model School and College, appreciated the initiative. He said the road in front of his college was very risky and accident-prone.

Prof Rahman expected that the speed breaker will contribute a lot towards facilitating the students to cross the road safely.
