Bangladesh: SASEC Dhaka-Northwest Corridor Road Project, Phase 2 - Tranche 1
The project will improve the road connectivity and efficiency of the Dhaka-Northwest international trade corridor, the second busiest artery in Bangladesh, after the Dhaka-Chittagong road. At the northwestern end of the corridor is the Burimari Land Port, which provides a gateway to Bhutan through India. Improving the transport infrastructure is expected to significantly increase trade in the land port.
