Strong tide disrupts ferry services on Paturia-Daulatdia route

Manager (commerce) of Daulatdia Terminal Md Shafiqul Islam said: “Strong tide of the river forced to stop the service of ferries, as it has already washed away three terminals out of four.”

Vehicular movement to ferry via one of the four terminals remained active which may stop anytime,” he added.

Consequently, hundreds of vehicles carrying people and goods got stuck on both sides of the route. Passengers in above 100 buses have been facing immense suffering because of the untoward condition.

Sources said the disruption put the country’s south western 21 districts disconnected from Dhaka.

Deputy Assistant Engineer of Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA) Md Shah Alam said: “We are trying repair the ferry terminals but we can't fight against the strong tide in the mighty Padma River.”

Earlier, authorities had halt vehicle shifting via No. one and three terminals for last one month as strong tide washed away them.
