DMP joint commissioner (Traffic North) Abu Saleh Md Raihan said vehicle movement has been suspended in three lanes of the road, leading to heavy congestion. "So, airport-bound passengers need to set out ahead of time."

"As the road has been separated into two, passengers need to stick to the left lane after passing Le Méridien Dhaka and Kawla. Those travelling from Khilkhet to Uttara or to Gazipur need to head out early," he added.
