Dhaka July 24 2022 :
The Government of the Republic of Korea, through Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), held a presentation session on the Draft Report for “Bangladesh National ITS Master Plan, ITS Architecture & Standards” under KOICA funded project ‘Improving the reliability and safety on National Highway Corridors of Bangladesh by Introduction of Intelligent Transport System (ITS)’ on July 20, 2022 at Renaissance Hotel, Dhaka.
The event was graced by H.E. Lee Jang-keun, Ambassador, Republic of Korea to Bangladesh, Ms. Young-Ah Doh, Country Director, KOICA Bangladesh Office, and AKM Manir Hossain Pathan, Chief Engineer, Roads and Highways Department among other high officials from Government of Bangladesh and experts from Korea.
Today’s event featured reporting the draft Master Plan, which covered Vision, Goals, and Implementation Strategies for ITS Master Plan, ITS Services and Systems, and Phase-by-phase Execution Plan with Financial Plan.
This ITS master plan is a mid to long-term plan, with a total of 10 years consisting of three phases: 1st Phase: 2023-2025, 2nd Phase: 2026-2028, and 3rd Phase: 2029-2032. Korea is home to a number of successful ITS systems, including the Bus Information System, which is operational in 147 cities, the 13,233 Automatic Traffic Enforcement System, and the Toll Fare Collection System (which has a 98 percent penetration rate).
Target roads are the National Highway from N1 to N8 and Linkage Roads under the jurisdiction of the RHD. The total estimated budget for the Bangladesh National ITS implementation will be about USD 269 million in 10 years.
Speakers expressed hope that the ITS master plan of KOICA can realize a sustainable and safe transport system in Bangladesh.
