Notice: Undefined variable: row in /var/www/archive/newDesign/print_news.php on line 297

Nakhalpara is situated at the heart of Dhaka City's Tejgaon area near the office of the Prime Minister. But the area remained ignored and neglected by Dhaka City Corporation (DCC) for long. Many real estate companies have built hundreds of apartments in this area. The roads and lanes of this area are very narrow and both sides of the roads are occupied by the grabbers.

As a result private cars and rickshaws cannot move smoothly. There is an important road from Tejgaon (Nabisco) to Farmgate (via Nakhalpara) which has been remained uncared and shattered for many years. This road from Nabisco-Nakhalpara-Farmgate needs to be expanded by demolishing unauthorized shops and structures so that private cars and rickshaws can run and pedestrians can walk smoothly. If vehicles are allowed to ply on this road, traffic jam on the VIP Road (Airport road) will be lessened.

It is worth mentioning that if any fire breaks out in the Nakhalpara areas, it would be like “towers inferno” because the roads and lanes are so narrow that fire fighting vehicles cannot move on these narrow roads.

We, the people of Nakhalpara, wish to bring this issue to the notice of DCC authorities and strongly urge them to repair and expand the roads for the sake of thousands of people's safety and security.
