A 26-km tailback was created on the Dhaka-Chattogram highway last night, causing immense sufferings to the commuters.

Several hundred vehicles were stuck on both sides on the busy highway stretching from the Meghna-Gomoti bridge to Kutumburpur of Chandina.

Rahmat Ullah, additional superintendent of highway police in Cumilla region, blamed the construction work and the huge rush of covered vans carrying garments shipment and Ramadan supplies for the traffic jam.

Though the highway police are trying to ease the vehicular movement, it could not be possible for them to bring the situation under control for the construction work, he added.
