Ferry services resume on Paturia-Daulatdia route after 10 hrs

Ferry services on the key Paturia-Daulatdia route in Manikganj resumed this morning after 10 hours of disruption due to dense fog

The ferry service resumed around 10:00 am when fog started to clear, said Zillur Rahman, deputy general manager of Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation (BIWTC) Aricha office.

Earlier, authorities suspended the service on the Paturia-Daulatdia route 11:45 pm yesterday to avoid accidents as the ferry's marking lights became dim as the fog thickened.

Besides, five ferries carrying passengers and vehicles also got stuck in the middle of the river following the suspension of ferry services.

In Munshiganj, the ferry services on Shimulia-Banglabazar route remained suspended since 12:00 midnight due to poor visibility caused by dense fog.
