The first metro line was put into service in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. The metro line, inaugurated by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday, was made available to the public in the morning. The first metro departed from Diabari district in Uttara to Agargaon with its passengers at 08.00:XNUMX local time. The interest of the citizens of the capital to the metro was great.
The metro line, which is expected to reduce the traffic density in Dhaka, one of the most populated cities in the world, will first serve without stopping at any station for 12 kilometers from Uttara to Agargaon. In addition, 1 wagon will be reserved for women in the subway. While the construction of the first metro line took about 6 years, the project was largely financed by Japan. The second phase of the line is planned to be completed in 2023. When the line is fully operational, it is expected to carry around 60 people per hour.
On the other hand, according to the World Health Organization data, more than 3 people die in traffic accidents in Bangladesh every year. In an accident that occurred in 2018, 2 students lost their lives after being hit by a speeding bus, and protesters took to the streets.
