A garage adjacent to the under-construction site of the National Bank Limited (NBL) Tower in city's Karwan Bazar area collapsed Sunday evening.
Meanwhile, traffic movement on Panthapath's southern lane resumed on Sunday, four days after it was sealed following the collapse of National Bank's under-construction site. Mohammad Iqbal, officer-in-charge of Kalabagan Police Station, told the Daily observer on Sunday that authorities cleared the southern lane, from SAARC fountain to Panthapath signal, at around 11:30am.
CR Dutta road and Sundarban Hotel were still off and sand-filling work was underway to mend the road that sank along with the collapse of the construction site on Wednesday.
Witnesses said the garage collapsed on Sunday evening when a portion of the NBL piling behind the tower had collapsed at around 7:30pm.
However, none was injured in this accident as there was no vehicle and people on the spot.
Assistant Commissioner (AC) of Tejgaon Zone police Rajib Das told the Daily Observer that public entrance had been restricted as the area became risky.
