CDA's mega project of outer ring road

Pankaj Dastider

CHITTAGONG, May 11: The Chittagong Development Authority (CDA) has undertaken a mega project for construction of 14.7 kilometre long outer ring road from Patenga to Sagorika Stadium road to save millions of people living along the coast of the Bay of Bengal plus major installations including the international airport and CEPZ from natural disasters.

Under the project the authority will elevate the height of the existing town protection embankment from 20-23 feet to 31-33 feet re-shaping it into embankment-cum-highway of 60 feet wide with four lanes for transportation of heavy duty vehicles from the port to other parts of the country without entering the city's mainland.

The CDA is implementing the Chittagong City Outer Ring Road project at an estimated cost of Tk 8.56 billion. The project is scheduled to be completed within December 2014 in joint collaboration of JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency) and the government of Bangladesh, officials said.

Japan Bank of International Cooperation (JBIC) is funding 80 per cent of the total cost of the project that stands at over Tk 6.81 billion while Bangladesh government provides the rest 20 per cent (Tk 1.75 billion).

Project director Kazi Hasan bin Shams said JBIC conducted a pilot study on multi-sector infrastructure development under Special Assistance for Project Formation (SAPROF) that included six sectors such as a) highway and bridges, b) port, c) railway, d) power, e) telecommunication and f) water supply and sanitation.

Four projects were determined under highway and bridges, one of which was Coastal Road Construction and Embankment Strengthening Project. Chittagong Outer Ring Road project is an important component of the embankment strengthening project, he said.

Feasibility study of the project was completed in January 2009 and it was decided that the ring road would be implemented on the existing embankment constructed by Bangladesh Water Development Board (BWDB) as the existing structure is not capable enough to save the nearby infrastructures and the people residing along the coast.

According to the project three connecting roads under feeder road-1, feeder road-2 and feeder road-3 will join with the 60-feet wide and 33-feet high ring road which will be used as the main transportation passage of all kinds of heavy duty vehicles from the city to the outbound destinations.

According to an official estimate 138,882 people died and national wealth worth billions of taka was washed away in the devastating cyclone and water surge of 29 April 1991.

Chairman of CDA Abdus Salam told the FE last Wednesday that the city will take a complete new look and millions of people living along the coastal area in the city will get rid of natural disasters.

Major installations like Shah Amanat International Airport, Chittagong Export Processing Zone, Karnaphuli Export Processing Zone, Chittagong Maritime Port, Bangladesh Navy Port, oil installations of Jamuna, Meghna and Padma, Chittagong Dry Dock, Eastern Refinery and other infrastructure facilities will get spared of the disaster as well, he hoped.

CDA is currently implementing 20 projects of construction and expansion of roads and highways in Chittagong city and beyond involving more than Tk 20 billion including three flyovers in the city, two residential areas and a dormitory for BGMEA workers. The outer ring road project is the biggest of them.

CDA Chairman Abdus Salam, who was assigned the job by the Prime Minister, Sheikh Hasina, in September 2009, has already implemented seven road development and extension projects, while six others are under process, officials said.

New Ctg convention centre on the cards

CHITTAGONG, MAY 26: Forest and Environment Minister Dr. Hasan Mahmud said that an international standard ‘Exposition and Convention Center’ will be constructed at city’s Koibulladham area under Pahartali police station in the port city to turn the city into a global city. There is no complication regarding the land as the owner of the land, Bangladesh Shipping Corporation, has already agreed to allot the land and the ministry of shipping decided to construct the convention center, he added.
Dr. Hasan Mahmud said this while visiting the proposed land site at Koibulladham area on Saturday. He was accompanied by Members of Parliamentary Standing Committee for Shipping Ministry Nasrul Hamid Bipu MP, Shamsul Hoque Chowdhury MP, Mostafa Kamal Pasha MP, Chairman of Chittagong Port Authority Rear Admiral Nizam Uddin Ahmed, Director General of Maritime Transport Department Commodore Jubayer and Managing Director of Bangladesh Shipping Corporation (BSC) Commodore Mokhsudul Quader, among others.
Talking to the journalists Dr. Hasan said that the 12.77 acres land of BCS is a hilly plain land and the natural beauty of the surrounding places made the land suitable for constructing the convention center. The expert team has also visited the proposed site and given positive concern about the land, he added.
He said there will be no need to cut hills and only dressing some parts of the hills the convention center will be constructed on the land which is almost double of the Bangabandhu International Convention Center in the capital.
It might be mentioned here that a 35 acres land owned by Water Development Board near Chittagong Port was primarily selected at the middle of last year to construct the convention center. A feasibility study was also done for the mega project but later there arose some complication regarding the land so the new site has been selected recently.
