Dhaka-Khulna steamer service resumes after 5 years
Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation (BIWTC) resumed the direct service on Dhaka-Khulna-Dhaka route, with re-launching the journey of a steamer from this evening from Dhaka towards Khulna. The famous and most popular steamer service of the state-owned BIWTC was discontinued on October 2, 2011 when Mongla-Ghasiakhali channel lost navigability. BIWTC resumed the service as the navigability was restored in the channel on completion of necessary dredging at the initiative of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, reports BSS. The steamer will leave Dhaka on Wednesdays at 6:30pm and depart Khulna on Fridays at 6:30pm. Initially, the service will continue on trial, BIWTC said. Public Relations Officer of BIWTC Nazrul Islam said the fare on the route will be the same as before suspension of the service. Currently, BIWTC is running four rocket services on Dhaka-Morolganj route besides operating ferry services across the country and running some water services on different routes.
