Mohakhali foot overbridge

A few years ago Mohakhali Railway overbridge was constructed and it has facilitated traffic movement on the road to some extent. But a big problem still continues to afflict the residents of the area. People of Mohakhali DOHS, Shahinbag, Arjat Para, etc., have to go to Mohakhali kutcha bazar everyday with big serious risks to their lives as they cross the road. This is an everyday hazard which puts a lot of pressure on their nerves. Hence a foot overbridge connecting Mohakhali kutcha bazar is a long felt necessity.

It is reported that the Kawran Bazar wholesale vegetables market will be shifted to Mohakhali in about two years' time. Hence the over bridge should be planned in such a way so that it may connect both Mohakhali kutcha bazar and the under construction wholesale vegetables market if possible. The proposed foot overbridge will be a great relief to the people of Mohakhali DOHS, Mohakhali proper, Shahinbag and Arjat Para.

I therefore appeal to Dhaka Municipal Corporation to rise to the occasion and construct a foot overbridge urgently to reduce the risks and hazards posed to the people of these areas for which act it will earn the gratitude of the people of the area.
