Description

The purpose of the project is to construct a 14.7km road on Chittagong's existing coastal embankment stretching from Patenga to Sagorika Industrial Area in the city. This project will also help alleviate the traffic congestion of existing roads and mitigate damages caused by the natural disasters, such as cyclones and high flood tides etc., thereby contributing to the promotion of the city and country's economic development.
