And from where did you glean this nugget of information? Travel there anytime?

Take a look...not really freeways with exits (in the American/Canadian sense)-- but most would call them highways.

Will this be the first expressway of Bangladesh? North side of Dhaka.

I'm not sure. Above, I meant to say there aren't any freeways in BD. Of course, there are highways, but most are horribly under-built. There are plans (but it's always plans, not bids or actual work) to build a freeway between Dhaka and Chittagong, BD's second largest city and one of the major port cities.

I believe Dhaka - Chittagong is currently upgraded to a dual carriageway, but it is surely not a freeway.

Bangladesh probably has the worst road network relative to its population in Asia. There are very few bridges to connect the various parts of the country and the roads that do exist run through numerous villages and urban areas. Dhaka is a huge city but has almost no high-standard roads.
