Daulatdia-Paturia ferry services resume after disruption

City Desk :

Ferry services on the Daulatdia-Paturia route resumed on Tuesday morning after six-hours. Ferry services were suspended due to low visibility caused by dense fog.

Authorities suspended the services to avoid accidents when the fog density increased around midnight. Fog started to dissipate at around 8 am on Tuesday morning, reports UNB.


Ferry services on the Daulatdia-Paturia route were suspended around 2:10 am after four ferries got stuck in the middle of the river due to poor visibility caused by dense fog, said Aricha office of Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation (BIWTC).

Due to the suspension, hundreds of vehicles were stranded at both ends, causing distress to passengers and drivers in the chilly weather.
