People of the megacity Dhaka are awfully busy. Here open door recreational facilities are insufficient. But city dwellers have less chance to go outside the city for recreation. To fulfill the demand of recreation of the city people Rajdhani Unnayan Kortipokho (RAJUK) has undertaken an initiative to excavate an attractive lake on the Begunbari- Hatirjheel cannel. On the completion of the project the city dwellers will get opportunity of sail across the lake. There are fine bridge across the
lake for the motorist. Super roads across the lake will reduce the traffic jam of the adjacent areas of Carwanbazar, Gulshan, Rampura, Tejgoan, Badda and Moghbazar. Government was acquisitioned 300 acres of land for the project. 7 bridges, 20 km walkway, 16 km road and overpasses are also included in the proj
ect. The cannel gets polluted water from nearby areas through drainage system. WASA will purify the water. Finally a water treatmen
t plant of 5 lacks liter capacity will be set up. It will treat the water of the lake and then the lake will get fresh water free from bad odor. The walkway, garden flower bush and everything in the project have changed the place into a beautiful spot.
