The high-speed elevated expressway has formally opened to the public this morning, ushering in a new era of vehicular movement in traffic-congested capital city.

Regular vehicular movement commenced on the expressway at 6:00 am on Sunday.

However, three-wheeler auto rickshaws, motorcycles, and bicycles are restricted from using the expressway, and the same will be applicable for pedestrians.

Prime minister Sheikh Hasina inaugurated the 11-kilometer expressway from Kawla to Tejgaon on Saturday afternoon. She became the first one to traverse the flyover in a car, paying the fixed toll.
