Bad weather suspends water transport services on Shimulia-Kathalbari routes

The Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA) on Friday has suspended river transport services on Kathalbari-Shimulia route in the Padma river due to bad weather.

BIWTC sources said that the suspension on the movement of launches, ferries, speedboats and fishing boats will continue until further notice.

The water transport will resume when weather conditions improve, sources said.

However, the Met Office on Friday advised maritime ports to hoist local cautionary signal number 4 and warned that low-lying coastal areas could be inundated by tidal surges.
