Communications Minister Obaidul Quader on Friday said that Dhaka-Munshiganj road will be upgraded into four lanes in the future.
He was talking to journalists after visiting the road in the district.
During his visit, the minister expressed his satisfaction over the completion of repair work of the road at Panchabati-Mukterpur.
The repair work on eight kms of the road was carried out under the supervision by Bangladesh Army at a cost of Tk 17.50 crore.
Quader said that many good initiatives were foiled due to complex process of timely release of fund.
Sufferings of people will not be relieved if such process is not removed, he said, seeking interference of Prime Minister in this regard.
During his visit to Mukterpur, the minister witnessed plying of different human haulers such as easy bike and nasiman.
He expressed his dissatisfaction over the matter as plying of such vehicles creates traffic jam as well as increase the risk to accident.
He directed the local administration to keep their close watch on plying of the illegal vehicles.
