Ferry-launch suspended from Friday morning

All water transports, including ferries, launches, speedboats and trawlers, will halt operation from 6 am Friday as the country begins another round of strict lockdown fearing a spread of the coronavirus infections following Eid celebration.

As per the July 13 cabinet decision, Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA) ordered water transports services to remain closed from 6 am on July 23 to 12 am on  August 5, said a media release on Thursday.

Meanwhile, no passenger vehicles and transports will be permitted on ferry from Friday (July 23) morning, as per another notification from Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Corporation (BIWTC) issued on July 9.

However, emergency vehicles and ambulances would be allowed to cross in compliance with strict health guidelines.

Both the notifications said that action would be taken against those who disobey the orders.
