‘Three-dimensional’ transport system for capital

Combine three transport sectors for additional benefit


There have been a lot of plans in progress throughout the country, some of which have already been realised and others are on the way to being realised fully. In this regard, the government has taken a three-dimensional plan on the mass transportation system for the capital city Dhaka to alleviate some of the pressure which results in traffic congestion in the city. This augurs well as it would mean a better and more organised way of communication in the metropolis.

According to a report published in this daily, the plan has been taken to improve efficiency, speed and convenience of the city commuters. Also, the plan has already been included in the Detailed Area Plan (DAP) of the Rajdhani Unnyan Kartripakkha (RAJUK). When it has already advanced this far, it can be hoped that pretty soon we will get to see this plan in reality.

The report also elaborates on how special emphasis has been given on non-motorised vehicles and pedestrian movement.

Experts opine that apart from roads and railways, waterways also have important roles in the capital’s transport system. Thus, a special three-dimensional plan has been prepared to incorporate all these modes of transportation.

We hope that this plan will be prudent and beneficial in creating a model which will ultimately permanently alleviate the problem of traffic congestion in the capital. Although there is huge potential in the three modes of transport, there is no coordination among them. As such, it would be prudent and beneficial if there was a central committee combining members from all three modes of transport then a comprehensive plan can be developed which will prove apt for the 

situation.

Above all, we hope that the authorities concerned will be able to develop and execute a plan that will prove beneficial for not only Dhaka city but for the entire country as well.
