The Daily Star reported that construction work of the Dhaka-Ashulia Elevated Expressway is expected to start in December this year, for quick entry and exit of vehicles to and from the capital. Road Transport and Bridges Minister Mr Obaidul Quader said that “Commercial agreement of the project has already been signed, and a loan deal will be signed soon. We hope that the construction work of main expressway will start within December this year.” He was talking to reporters after attending a contract signing ceremony regarding the project at Setu Bhaban in the capital.

However, the 24-kilometre expressway will connect Hazrat Shahjahal International Airport to Abdullahpur, Ashulia, DEPZ and Chandra on Dhaka-Tangail Highway. It will be an extension of the 20 kilometer Dhaka Elevated Expressway, linking airport to the Dhaka-Chattogram highway near Shanir Akhra. Once the expressway is completed, it will help ease traffic congestion and allow trucks to move across the capital throughout the day. Trucks are now barred from entering the city from 8am to 8pm to avoid tailbacks.
