Ferry services on Shimulia-Banglabazar route resume after 12 hrs

Ferry services on Shimulia-Banglabazar route resumed this morning after 12 hours of disruption due to dense fog.

Faisal Ahmed, Manager (Commerce) of Shimulia Ghat of Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation (BIWTC), said the authority resumed the ferry services from 10:00 am after fog began to disappear.

Earlier around 10:00 pm on Sunday, the authorities suspended ferry services following dense fog to avoid unwanted incidents, he added.

Over 800 vehicles were seen waiting on both sides to cross the river Padma, causing immense sufferings to the passengers.

Three ferries carrying passengers and vehicles had to anchor in the middle of the river due to the fog.
