MNA National Desk: Passengers continued to suffer as they were getting stuck in a 32-kilometre tailback on the Dhaka-Chattogram highway on Thursday, reported news agency.
A 22-km tailback was seen stretching from Daudkandi’s Meghna-Gumti bridge toll plaza to Madhaiya in Chandina upazila while a 10-km gridlock in Munshiganj district.
Hundreds of vehicles, including cattle-laden ones, remain stranded on both sides of the bridge, causing untold sufferings to the travellers.
Cattle traders travelling through the highway suffered a lot as most of the cattle fell sick for unavailability of fodder.
Nazrul Islam, superintendent of regional Highway Police, said the tailback on the busiest national highway started on Tuesday and there has been no respite so far.
