Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader today told the Jatiya Sangsad that Metrorail communication on Uttara-Agargaon rout would start its operation from 2019.
The minister sounded this optimism while replying to a query of treasury bench member Momtaz Begum during the question and answer session in the House on Sunday.
Quader, also the ruling Awami League general secretary, said the authority concerned has decided to introduce metrorail on Agargaon-Motijheel rout within 2020.
The road transport minister said it was scheduled to finish the work of Metrorail Project from 2012 to June in 2024. Subsequently the government revised the target to complete the work by 2019.
“City dwellers would be able to travel by the Metrorail within the stipulated timeframe,” the minister hoped.
