Rather not imagine traffic on that road after darkness ... in a total absence of lane discipline, loads of unlit rickshaws, mopeds and pedestrians co-existing with cars running at 100 km/h and more

Two major four-laning projects will be inaugurated on 2 July 2016.

It's 192 kilometers of N1 between Dhaka and Chittagong and approximatly 90 kilometers of N3 between Joydebpur and Mymensingh.

These are not freeways or expressways, but at-grade divided highways, with a lot of roadside access. It's still a major improvement. There are plans for a new expressway between Dhaka and Chittagong.

I'm suprised no one has ever tried setting one of these BD highway videos to "Jesus, Take the Wheel"

Anyway this new video shows the DAC-CTG highway a few weeks before the 4-lane divided highway goes online.

PM opens today 8-lane part of highway to Ctg

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is set to inaugurate the country's first eight-lane highway corridor and construction of the first four-lane expressway today.

The Road Transport and Highways Division has already completed construction of the 7.2 kilometres stretch of the eight-lane highway termed "enter and exit corridor". The corridor has been built between the Mayor Hanif Flyover and Shimrail intersection on the Jatrabari-Kanchpur national highway near the capital.
Full report: http://www.thedailystar.net/backpage...ay-ctg-1268923

Interestingly, the article also mentions a 55 kilometer expressway under construction from Dhaka to Bangpa, which runs across the Padma Bridge.
Meanwhile, Bangladesh Army will construct the country's first four-lane expressway, connecting the Mayor Hanif Flyover in Dhaka with Bhanga of Faridpur, over the Padma bridge.

It would cost Tk 6,252 crore to build the 55-kilometre-long expressway while the cost of widening of one kilometre of the highway to four lanes would be around Tk 114 crore.

"Construction of the highway will be completed before the inauguration of the Padma bridge," Quader told reporters while visiting Tegharia area on the Dhaka-Mawa highway. He was visiting the place to observe the preparation of the construction work by Bangladesh Army.

There would be 5.5-metre-wide separate service lanes along both sides of the expressway for slow-moving vehicles and a five-meter-wide median for constructing metro-rail in the future. Six flyovers, four railway overpasses, 15 underpasses and three interchanges would be part of the highway project.

This would be the country's first such expressway without any traffic crossover, facilitating uninterrupted vehicular movement.

Quader said the army was awarded the construction work for its capacity of implementing the project swiftly, ensuring high quality.
