Earthen embankment along Maghbazar to connect Rampura

Maghbazar-Ramna area.
Manual digging of the wetland and making road embankment on both sides of Jheel proceeding under supervision of the Armed forces. The objective of the project was to drain out stagnant water from the city quickly during rainy season. It is said that there will be a circular road around the lake to ease traffic in the centre of the town.

(Hatirjheel-Begunbari Canal Project- still a long way to go!)
