Ban heavy vehicles on Rampura link road: HC

The High Court today directed the government to ban for three months heavy vehicles on Demra-Amulia road, a link road at Sheikher Jaiga in Dhaka’s Rampur area to protect the road from damage.

The court also issued a rule asking the authorities concerned to explain why their inability and incompetency to control traffic congestion through restraint and prohibition of heavy vehicle movement on the road should not be declared illegal.

The HC bench of Justice Salma Masud Chowdhury and Justice AKM Jahirul Haque came up with the order and rule following a writ petition filed by Qamrul Hasan Khan Pathan, a residence of Banasree in Rampura seeking necessary order from the HC.

The petition was filed to protect the link road from damage and traffic congestion.

Secretary to the ministry of Road, Transport and Bridges, home secretary, inspector general of police, Bangladesh Road Transport Association’s chairman, chief engineer and engineers of Roads and Highways Department, Dhaka Metropolitan Police commissioner and its additional commissioners, officer-in-charge of Rampura and Khilgaon police stations, sub-division engineers of roads and highways department have been made respondents to the rule.
