(Spin Digit Editorial):- Dhaka, Bangladesh Mar 22, 2021 ( – Bangladesh’s first six-lane Dhaka-Mawa-Bhanga expressway is designed with all the facilities of a modern highway to ensure the people can efficiently utilize the Padma Bridge, the biggest infrastructure project in the country, once it is constructed. The expressway has opened to traffic in March 2020.

21 southern districts of the country are connected to the capital which caused people to effectively move from Dhaka to their separate destinations. It requires only 27 minutes to reach Mawa from Dhaka. Construction of the expressway on both sides of the Padma River began in May 2016. The work on the Aesthetic Highway has been completed for four years.
