Vehicular movement resumes on Chattogram bridge

Staff Reporter

Vehicular movement on Kalurghat Bridge resumed in the early hours of Saturday, after remaining suspended for nearly five hours due to the derailment of an oil tanker of a freight train.

Ahsan Jabir, additional chief engineer (bridge) of Railway East Zone, said that the tanker veered off the railway track on the Chattogram-Dohazari route while returning to the port city from Cox’s Bazar Dohazari Pinki Power Plant around 8.30pm on Friday.

The derailment disrupted road and rail communication on the busy bridge. Later, a railroad crane from Pahartoli rushed to the spot and removed the tanker at 1:30am.
A number of vehicles remained stranded on both sides of the bridge shortly after the accident, the official said.
