A 15-km tailback was created on the Dhaka-Chattogram highway on Thursday morning, causing immense sufferings to the commuters.

Several hundred vehicles were stuck on both sides on the busy highway stretching from Hasanpur under Daudkandi upazila of Cumilla to the eastern side of Meghna Bridge in Munshiganj point since the morning.

Rahmat Ullah, additional superintendent of highway police in Cumilla region said the tailback was created due to the heavy pressure of vehicles on the highway ahead of the weekend.

Hundreds of goods-laden trucks and buses were seen stranded on the road due to the slow movement of vehicles.
