Water transport services on all routes suspended

Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA) on Saturday suspended the operation of all types of vessels across the country due to the inclement weather.

 

BIWTA public relations officer Mobarak Hossain said the plying of launches, ferries and speedboats will remain halted on all waterways throughout the country until further notice.

 

He said the decision came following incessant rains across the country under the influence of depression in the Bay of Bengal.

 

At present, a total of 295 vessels operate on different river routes across the country.
