Launches, speedboats on Shimulia-Kanthalbari route halted

The authorities of BIWTC suspended the movement of launch and speedboat on the Shimulia-Kanthalbari route from Friday morning due to rough weather.

Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation's (BIWTC) Kanthalbari Ghat confirmed the matter.

Meanwhile, plying of ferries on the route have been halted for a long time following poor navigability.

Strong winds and heavy rain are continuing as a deep depression has formed in the Bay of Bengal.

The BIWTC authorities kept moving the launch and speedboats from this morning to avert the risk as huge tidal was seen in the River Padma.
