Uttara road digging: DNCC files GD against Dhaka Wasa

The Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) has filed a general diary (GD) against the Dhaka Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) for digging roads without prior permission from it.

Solaiman Kabir of the Engineering Department of the DNCC Zone-1 (Uttara Area) filed the GD with the Uttara West Poliec Station under the Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) on Saturday.

It was alleged in the GD that Road Numbers 9/B, 13 and 34 at Sector 7 in Uttara under the DNCC’s Ward No. 1 were dug without the permission from the authorities concerned. A designated contractor of the Dhaka Wasa is installing the underground water pipelines cutting and digging the roads. It deprives the DNCC of revenue earnings. Besides, movement of people and vehicles is being affected.

It was learnt that the contractor appointed under the Dhaka Water Supply Network Improvement Project of the Dhaka Wasa has been digging the roads.

Contacted, the project director Akhtaruzzaman said, “We are discussing the matter with the DNCC. Hopefully, we”ll be able to reach an amicable solution.”
