Prime minister Sheikh Hasina is going to inaugurate Bangladesh’s first-ever metro rail service up to Motijheel in October.

The road transport and bridges minister Obaidul Quader said this while addressing a seminar in Dhaka on Sunday.

‘The prime minister will inaugurate the metro rail up to Motijheel this October,’ he said.

Currently, the metro rail is running for 12 hours between 8:00am and 8:00pm by taking passengers from all the nine stations on the Uttara-Agargaon route in Bangladesh capital Dhaka to facilitate the passengers.

Prime minister Sheikh Hasina launched the country’s first-ever electricity-powered elevated and air-conditioned rail system on December 28, 2022.

The entire 21.26-kilometre-long Uttara-Kamalapur route is scheduled to be inaugurated in June 2025.
