11 Key Issues Ahead construction of the Padma Bridge
reduction of traffic congestion of Dhaka City, construction of BRT, MRT and elevated expressways, flyovers/overpasses etc. improve global and regional connectivity standardization of road, railway and waterway networks capital dredging of riverine channels establish circular rail and waterways in and around the Dhaka city establishment of a Dhaka Mass Transit Authority (DMTA) 11 11

12 Challenges creation of more physical facilities
construction of new roads, new railway tracks, flyovers, tunnels, metro rails, BRT, elevated expressways etc, widening ( 4 lane) of National Highways, widening of Asian Highways - regional and international connectivity standardization of Axle Load design for International and regional connectivity construction of BR’s important missing links integration of multimodal facilities improve traffic management asset preservation/periodic maintenance (particularly roads, railways) 12 12 12

13 Challenges (contd.) accomplish reform process of DTCB and BR
digitalization (e-tendering, e-ticketing etc) of services raising of road embankment to accommodate the effect of global climate change capital dredging of main riverine channel capacity enhancement of ports establishment of deep sea ports, hub of international transit facilities activate circular waterways in and around the Dhaka city construction of 2nd Padma Multi-purpose bridge 13 13

20 Milestone Progress Contd.
Bangladesh has acceded to the Asian Highway Network and physical alignment of Asian Highway route in Bangladesh almost finalized. Intergovernmental Agreement on Trans-Asian Railway network has been accorded by the Cabinet and only awaiting ratification by the Parliament. BRTA and BR initiated digitalization of some services (e-ticketing, driving licenses, etc. RHD introduced Central Management System to ensure better transparency. BR initiated institutional reform, DTCB reconstituted as Dhaka Mass Transit Authority(DMTA) with more power and capacity. Several study programs to reduce traffic congestion in Dhaka city by constructing BRT, MRT, flyovers etc. have been undertaken. 20
