Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader today expressed discontent over the quality of roads and said that some roads are easily damaged just within two or three months of construction after a period of rain.

“Why would anyone make roads that are damaged just after a brief rainfall,” Quader told reporters after a view-exchange meeting with the officials of Roads and Highways Department at its head office in Tejgaon.

It should be addressed, the minister said.

He said there is an issue with “overweight vehicles” on the roads. “But still why would the roads get damaged so quickly. The road construction process is definitely faulty then,” Quader said.

“In my own districts Begumganj (in Noakhali), poor construction materials were being used for the construction of a road. After I found out the matter, it was investigated and found to be true. If such a thing can happen in my own district, then what is the guarantee it wont happen everywhere else,” Quader told reporters.


He instructed those responsible for ensuring quality of road construction to build roads so that it lasts long.

Quader also urged everyone to make sure there is no corruption or irregularities and said it would be “painful” if such news appear in the media.

The minister appreciated the work of the Dhaka-Bhanga Highway which cost more than usual but he said that the work should be of good quality even if it costs a bit more.

“In those areas, where major development work is going on, care should be taken to ensure the existing roads remain suitable for use,” Quader added.

He also asked the authorities concerned to make sure the roads and highways are prepared well for handling the Eid rush.The minister also appreciated the work of the Dhaka-Bhanga Highway which cost more than usual but he said that the work should be of good quality even if it costs a bit more.
