The first part of Moghbazar-Mouchak Flyover from Holy Family Mor to Tejgaon Satrasta crossing is expected to be opened to traffic in March next.
Sources at the Local Government and Engineering Department (LGED) said the construction works on the first part of the flyover will be completed in February while the second part - from Mouchak to Bangla Motor-in June and the third part-from Kakrail to Rampura-in December next.
The 8.7-km long flyover is being constructed in three parts to ease traffic congestion between the capital's north and south zones.
The project has already failed its deadlines for a number of times and is likely to get extension by another 18 months to June 2017, with a fresh proposal of raising the overall project cost by another Tk 446.20 crore to Tk 1218.90 crore.
As of June 2015, the project witnessed about 49.47 percent financial progress with Tk 382.30 crore being spent since the Local Government and Engineering Department started the work in February 2013.     ?UNB
