Manik Mia Avenue, one of the busiest roads in the capital, will be kept free of cars in the morning today (Friday). Dhaka Transport Coordination Authority (DTCA) has been organizing such programme on the first Friday of every month since 2017.
Since its inception, 200 meters of Manik Mia Avenue road in front of the Parliament Building, is kept free from car from 8:00 am to 11:00 am on every Friday aiming to allocate a space for children to play on the city road under the sky.
Marking the first year anniversary of the initiative, the DTCA and Surf Excel, a brand of Unilever Bangladesh, in association with Dhaka Metropolitan Police, would hold a daylong event for the children of Dhaka city at Manik Mia Avenue.
Surf Excel will feature a handful of activities to make the children’s participation more rewarding.
