Rajshahi City Corporation (RCC) is going to construct a separate lane along for unhindered bicycle riding by the children including the juveniles and adolescents in the city.
In preliminary stage, RCC will construct a lane from Fire Brigade crossing to C&B crossing under its 'Zero Soil Project'.
RCC former mayor AHM Khairuzzaman Liton and present mayor-in-charge Nizam Ul Azim opened the construction works in a simple ceremony at Kazihata area on Sunday.
Commissioner of Rajshahi Metropolitan Police Md Shamsuddin, Principal of New Govt. Degree College Prof Jarjish Kadir, RCC Chief Engineer Ashraful Haque and others concerned were present on the occasion.
Speaking on the occasion, former mayor Liton hoped that the initiative will benefit the juveniles alongside the pedestrians. He urged the city corporation authority to implement the project with utmost sincerity and honesty so that the target group of people can derive its total benefits.
Nizam Ul Azim said that the RCC is implementing various development projects to improve the city's road network. Many of the projects have already been implemented, while some others are in process of implementation.
Engineer Ashraful Haque said 'Zero Soil' project is being implemented aimed at planting new trees throughout the city. We will plant thousands of Kath Karabi (flowering trees) that would release more oxygen."
Massive tree plantation can help reduce carbon emission at a substantial level and that is very important to face the adverse impact of climate change in the region, according to BSS. - Idrak
