Ferry services on the Mawa-Kewrakandi route remained suspended for at least three hours early Thursday due to dense fog. Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation’s Mawa manager Sirajul Hoque told bdnews24.com ferry operations on the route stopped around 6am Thursday to avoid any accident.
Six ferries had been anchored in the mid-river while five others got stuck in the pier during the suspension.
The halt created long lines of vehicles on both sides.
Sirajul said the ferries resumed services around 9am after the fog eased.
