Vehicular movement on and under MA Mannan Flyover in Chattogram has been suspended after a crack in a ramp was found
Police suspended vehicular movement on and under MA Mannan Flyover in the port city of Chattogram around 10:00 pm on Monday night after a crack in a ramp of the flyover was found.
Chandgaon Police Station OC Mainur Rahman said that immediately after noticing the crack, police halted traffic on and under the flyover and informed the matter to Chattogram Development Authority (CDA) and Chattogram City Corporation (CCC).
Local ward councillor Esrarul Haque Esral said that the crack was spotted on a ramp leading from Bahaddarhat to Kalurghat road. The traffic in that part has been stopped to avoid any kind of accident.
The one-kilometre flyover connecting Shulakbahar and Bahaddarhat was constructed by the Chattogram Development Authority (CDA) at a cost of Tk 106 crore. At least 13 people were killed when the guarder of the under-construction flyover collapsed in Chandgaon on November 24, 2012.
