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 Wednesday morning.
Shah Khaled Newaj, assistant general manager of Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation’s (BIWTC) Shimulia Ghat office, said ferry services had been suspended on the route from about 5:00am to 8:30am due to poor visibility caused by dense fog.
Ferries loaded with vehicles could not leave Shimulia and Kawrakandi ferry terminals while seven ferries remained motionless in the mid river due to the fog.
The ferry service resumed at about 8:30am as the fog started disappearing with the sunrise, Khaled added.
