Project Background

The main component of the Project is to upgrade the Joydevpur-Chandra-Tangail-Elenga Road (JCTE) to a 4-Lane Highway with safety features including separate Lanes for Slow Moving Vehicular Traffic (SMVT). The proposed JCTE Road is one of the vital links in the National Highway network. The existing road, which is a two-lane highway having no divider between two opposite direction traffic and no separate lane for slow moving vehicles, often gets severely congested also poses significant threats to road safety. Given that the capacity of this 2-lane Highway is constrained due to rapid traffic growth, the upgrading of this Highway to a 4-lane Highway having continuous median, flyover at busy sections & intersections, underpasses and both sides separate SMVT lanes will significantly increase the capacity and safety of this important Highway section.
