Road accident a matter of great concern: Quader


Road Transport and Bridges Minister  Obaidul Quader on Tuesday termed the unabated road accidents as the matter of ‘great concern’.

“I've talked earlier that discipline on roads has yet been restored. Discipline in roads and transport sector is less than the infrastructural development that causes  the accidents and traffic congestion,” said the minister at a press briefing at the Secretariat.

Replying to a question on government’s effort to bring back discipline on roads, he said, “A meeting of the Road Safety Council will be convened soon. The committee will be reformed.”

“We are planning to undertake new progammes. A committee consists of  road specialists will be formed in the council meeting," Quader said adding, "Report from the committee will be sought within a short time. If necessary, a taskforce will be formed.”

Road accident spree must be stopped, said Quader, also the Awami League General Secretary.
