Ferry service resumes on Shimulia-Kawrakandi route

MUNSHIGANJ, Dec 29, 2016 (BSS) - The ferry service on Shimulia-Kawrakandi route resumed this morning after seven hours suspension due to thick fog on the route.

Manager of Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation (BIWTC) of Shimulia, Giasuddin Patwary, said the ferry movement was suspended from 3 am due to poor visibility.

About 400 vehicles, including buses, trucks and cars, remained stranded at both ends of the important route, he added.

However, the ferry service resumed around 10am as fog started disappearing with the sunrise.
