UNB, Dhaka :

Ferries from Mawa terminal will operate as per people’s demand, said State Minister for shipping Khalid Mahmud Chowdhury on Tuesday.

“We did not stop ferry services in the Padma River after the opening of the Padma Bridge as currently six ferries are operating on the route. As per the government decision the ferry operation will continue,” he said.

The minister said these while talking to reporters after attending an award giving ceremony at the ministry.

Talking about the ban on plying of motorbikes on the Padma Bridge, Khalid said the government banned plying of motorbikes on the Padma Bridge temporarily and decision will be taken in this regard after installation of speed gun and CCTV on the bridge.

Talking about the removal of nuts from the Padma Bridge by a person, Khalid said it was the ornament of the Padma Bridge and someone attempted to snatch it.

Referring to the development of river routes across the country, the state minister said, “We are taking initiatives keeping the development of river routes in mind and the bridges are being constructed without hampering navigability of rivers.”
