The construction work of Dhaka City Inter-District Bus Terminal in Narayanganj’s Kanchpur will be completed by the middle of 2024, said Barrister Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh, mayor of Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC).

“Once the terminal is launched, buses of 16 districts in Chattogram and Sylhet divisions will be able to use this terminal,” said the DSCC mayor while talking to reporters after visiting the construction work of the terminal on Wednesday (December 6) morning.

“Landfilling has already been completed. The rest of the work will be completed within the stipulated time. The construction of other infrastructures including the boundary wall and bus parking depot around the terminal will be done in phases,” he said.

The opening of the terminal would improve the quality of passenger services while reducing traffic congestion in the capital and its surrounding areas, the DSCC mayor hoped.
