Holidaymakers who are  travelling on Dhaka-Chittagong highway witnessed no traffic congestion on Tuesday (9 April) despite increased number of vehicles on the highway. 

Shahinul Islam, officer-in-charge of Daudkandi Highway Police, said vehicles were seen crossing the highway smoothly and no tailback was seen on the 105 km area of Dhaka-Chattogram highway from Daudkandi toll plaza to Mohammad Ali point on Tuesday.

Though the highway witnessed a heavy pressure of vehicles on Monday night but the situation is normal from Tuesday morning, he said.

A few number of export-oriented good laden vehicles and vegetables-laden trucks were seen plying the highway, he said.

Highway police, district police and local administration are working to keep the movement of vehicles normal.

They were seen performing duties at the important points on the highway including Daudkandi, Eliotganj, Madhaia, Chandina, Nimsar, Cantonment, Alekhachar, Paduar Bazar, Guagazi, Mia Bazar, Chouddagram and Chiora points.

Depending on the sighting of Shawwal moon, the Eid-ul-Fitr is scheduled to be celebrated  on April 10 or April 11.
