Rickshaw to be banned three roads on Dhaka from July 7
The Rickshaws will be banned from plying in the three roads of the capital from July 7.
Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) Mayor Sayeed Khokon came up with the announcement after emerging from a meeting of a special committee formed in this regard at his office in the capital on Wednesday.
The roads are: Kuril to Sayedabad via Rampura and Khilgaon; Gabtoli to Azimpur via Asad Gate; and Science Laboratory Intersection to Shahbagh Intersection.
Talking to reporters, Khokon said DSCC and DNCC will begin a week-long drive on three selected roads in the capital to implement the agenda of the committee.
Earlier on June 19, a committee was formed to identify and remove unauthorised rickshaws, auto-rickshaws and battery-run rickshaws off the streets and free footpaths from grabbers in next two months to ease commute of Dhaka dwellers and improve traffic condition in the city.
