Contract no.: 1-2014/15
Location: Chittagong City Outer Ring Road
Fund Authority: Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA)
Contract Value: US$120 million
The Chattogram City Outer Ring Road is an ongoing project of the Spectra Engineers Limited funded by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). The project involves construction of the road and the surrounding fence.
The road is 17km in length and connects Kam Dam from Patenga beach to Faujdarhat on the shores of Karnaphuli. Making use of highly mechanized machines, SEL has installed the fence to restrict seawater from hitting the dam straightaway. Additionally, the road has been opened to limited traffic. In current times, the road is used by freight trucks, lorries, Chattogram port covered vans, and individual vehicles commuting to the airport.
