Paturia-Daulatdia ferry services resume after 8 hours

Ferry services on the key Paturia-Daulatdia route in the Padma River resumed after an eight-hour suspension on Sunday morning after visibility improved.

Zillur Rahman, deputy general manager of Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation (BIWTC), said the authorities concerned kept ferry services suspended from around 2:00am because of poor visibility.

The ferry services resumed around 10:00am after the fog lifted. Five ferries had remained stranded in the middle of the river while 300 vehicles were stuck at the both sides, causing immense suffering to the commuters.

Suspension of ferry services due to poor visibility is a common occurrence during winter in Bangladesh.
