DHAKA: Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina underscored the need for undertaking integrated development projects to get the best output.
She directed the authorities concerned to take plans of development projects in such a way that one becomes complementary to another.
The premier said: “Once plans (of development projects) are taken, they should be integrated and complementary to each other.”
She said this while witnessing a power-point presentation on the realignment of the Hatirjheel part of Sonargaon-BUET Link of the Dhaka Elevated Expressway under the PPP Project at the Prime Minister’s Office on Sunday (February 23).
After witnessing the presentation, the premier gave her consent to the newly designed alignment of the Dhaka Expressway which will connect Palashi via Kataban beside the south side of BIAM (Bangladesh Institute of Administration and Management) building through the periphery of the Hatirjheel lake.
She added: “This is ok. You can implement it (the proposal of realignment of Hatirjheel part of Sonargaon-BUET Link of the Dhaka Elevated Expressway).
The Link will benefit dwellers in old Dhaka city and Dhanmondhi as it was estimated that some 20 percent of traffic vehicles enter through the link.
