Heavy vehicles advised to avoid Shimulia-Kathalbari ferry route

Heavy vehicles have been advised to avoid Shimulia-Kathalbari ferry route as dredging work is underway in the river Padma.

The ferry services on the route in Lauhajang upazila were suspended on Saturday afternoon due to poor navigability as the channel had only 5 feet water whereas the required limit is 7-8 feet, said Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation (BIWTC) AGM Khandker Shah Khaled Newaj.
