The intercity and local trains have resumed running on the Dhaka-Mymensingh-Netrokona-Mohanganj railway line after five days of shutting down due to the collapse of a railway bridge in floodwaters.

The train started plying on this railway on Thursday (June 23) morning.

Barhatta station master Golam Rabbani said the Dhaka-bound Haor Express train stuck at Mohanganj left today (Thursday) morning. Trains are running normally on this route from today.

Earlier on June 18, the bridge of Railway No. 23 at Islampur between Atitpur railway station in Mohanganj and Barhatta upazilas of the district collapsed due to floodwaters.

As a result, train movement on this route was shut down. The bridge collapsed, leaving the Dhaka-bound Haor Express at Mohanganj and a local train bound for Mohanganj at Barhatta stuck. Five days after the incident, trains were running from Barhatta station to Netrokona and across the country including Dhaka and Mymensingh.
