Tripura lauds decision of upgradation of Akhaura – Ashuganj port road

Agartala, Jan 25 (UNI) The Tripura government has welcomed the decision of upgrading 50.58 km long road between Ashuganj river port and Akhaura land port of Bangladesh to four lane highway for smooth road connectivity with Agartala, which is believed to further boost international trade.

The road between Ashuganj river port to Dharhar area was signed between Roads and Highways Department (RHD) of Bangladesh and an Indian Company Afcons Infrastructure Limited in presence of Bangladesh’s transport and bridge minister Obaidul Qader and Indian high commissioner to Bangladesh Riva Ganguly Das.
According to report, the project is part of the two billion US dollar second line of credit extended by India to Bangladesh in 2016, which would boost connectivity between Bangladesh and North-eastern states as well as will facilitate sub-regional connectivity among South and South-east Asian countries.
