Dhaka-northern region rail link snapped rail bridge subsides

The train communication of Dhaka with the northern region of the country remained suspended since Sunday morning as a part of a rail bridge on the Pouli River in Kalihati upazila of Tangail district subsided as strong current of floodwater eroded soil from the riverbed.

Station master of Gharinda Railway Station Jalaluddin said they noticed the matter around 5:30 am and stopped the train movement through the bridge.

As a result, around six to seven trains got stuck on both sides of the bridge, said Jalaluddin, adding, a team has been working to repair the bridge as soon as possible, reports UNB.
