Fog halts Paturia-Daulatdia ferry services

Ferry services on the Paturia-Daulatdia route in the Padma River remained suspended since Saturday morning due to dense fog, UNB reports.

 

The authorities of Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation (BIWTC) suspended the ferry services and plying of the water vessels on the route from 7:30am due to blurred visibility caused by thick fog, said Nasir Uddin Mohammad Chowdhury, assistant general manager of BIWTC at Aricha.

 

Six ferries remained stuck in the middle of the river while five others lay anchored at Paturia and Daulatdia ghats respectively with a good number of vehicles and passengers on board.

 

The ferry services on the busy route will resume once the visibility returns, he added.
