Commuters suffer as road to ferry terminal goes under water in Bagerhat
The road connecting Bagerhat's Morrelganj ferry terminal to the main road has been flooded.
As a result, commuters are facing difficulty in reaching the terminal, reports our correspondent.
Bagerhat Roads and Highways Department Executive Engineer, Farid Uddin, said, "The connecting road has been flooded due to incoming tidal water. We will try to elevate the road soon."
Ganesh Paul, a local of Morrelganj upazila, said that thousands of vehicles go through this ferry terminal every day. However, when the tide rises above normal, the road goes under water, and commuters have to endure a great deal of hardship.
Diponkor Mondol, a ferry passenger, said that he had to wade through two feet of water to reach the main road.
