Madaripur: The ro-ro ferry services on Mawa-Kawrakandi route remained suspended from Monday afternoon after the newly established ro-ro terminal at Mawa was devoured by the Padma River.
BIWTA marine officer at Mawa M Shajahan said the mighty river gobbled up the terminal around 3pm today, barely four days after it was newly established.
The incident forced the authorities to suspend the ro-ro ferry services on the river route.
The ro-ro ferry terminal was set anew up on August 28 following the collapse of the No-3 terminal on August 27.
Meanwhile, the Padma was still flowing 34cm above the danger level on Monday although the water level marked a fall by 2cm.
