The train service on Dhaka-Narayanganj route will be temporarily closed from December 4 for the Padma Bridge Rail Link project.

According to the notice, Bangladesh Railway has decided to suspend all trains plying on the Dhaka-Narayanganj route from December 4, 2022, in order to complete the project quickly.
