Launch services on Shimulia-Banglabazar route suspended

Launch and speedboat services on the Shimulia-Banglabazar route in the Padma river of Munshiganj district have been halted due to bad weather.

The authorities of Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation (BIWTC) suspended the services at 9:30am due to strong currents in the Padma River to avert any further untoward incident, confirmed Akhter Hossain, traffic inspector at BIWTA's Banglabazar launch ghat.

Launch and speedboat services will resume once the weather conditions improve, he added.
