Munshiganj: Ferry services on the Shimulia-Kawrakandi route in the River Padma resumed after three and a half hours’ disruption caused by dense fog on Tuesday morning.
Shah Khaled Newaj, assistant general manager of Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation’s (BIWTC’s) Shimulia Ghat office, said ferry services had been suspended on the Shimulia-Kawrakandi route from 5:00am to 8:30am due to poor visibility caused by dense fog.
Ferries loaded with vehicles remained stranded at Shimulia and Kawrakandi ferry ghats. Six ferries stayed stranded in the mid river due to the fog.
