An underwater tunnel will be built under the Buriganga River to ease the hardship of commuters on each side of the river, said Shipping Minister Shahjahan Khan on Wednesday.

The minister also directed the Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA) to take the necessary steps regarding the matter in a meeting with BIWTA officials at the terminal Bhaban of Sadarghat this morning.

The minister also said “A new modern launch terminal will be built at Shasanghat near Postagola and for the terminal a 2.5 kilometer road from Sadargat to Shasanghat financed by BIWTA is under-construction.”

After implementing the terminal passenger harassment will be minimized significantly, the minister hoped.

“The splendor of Sadarghat terminal has returned due to the effective steps of Shipping Ministry and BIWTA. The launch terminal has been made hawker-free,” he said, adding the number of terminal building, parking yard, and pontoons were raised to ensure passenger satisfaction. UNB
