Bangladesh - Construction of Circular Railway line around Dhaka City

About this project

Dhaka is one of the busiest cities that serves as the center of political, economic and cultural life in Bangladesh. Dhaka has one of the largest population densities in the world with the continuation of urban expansion. The existing urban transport system has failed to adapt the city development and the rapid population growth. Therefore, extreme traffic congestion has become a normal state in Dhaka, wasting time and affecting the comfort of millions. To minimize the traffic congestion, it is planned to adopt mass rail transit (MRT), Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system, railway and other modern means of transport to relieve urban traffic.
