special train launched
Railways has launched three special train services to alleviate the daily traffic congestion and misery on the highway from Tongi to Chandna crossroads in Gazipur. The three special trains were launched to connect the capital with the inauguration of the Turag Express on Sunday morning.

The train will run on the Dhaka-Mymensingh highway leaving half the seats vacant in the morning and afternoon to avoid traffic jam.

Meanwhile, the first train to Dhaka left a little late on the first day, but passengers are happy with the launch of the service. However, they demanded to increase the number of tickets and bogies.

Passengers will be able to travel on Tangail Commuter at 8:30 am and Kaliakair Demo Train at 5:00 pm every day.

Earlier, Gazipur-2 MP and State Minister for Youth and Sports Zahid Ahsan Russell wrote on Facebook about the launch of the railway service, saying, We have taken initiative to launch special train service from Dhaka and from Dhaka to Gazipur via Tongi. I am extremely grateful to Hon'ble Railway Minister Nurul Islam Sujan. I will continue all kinds of development efforts in the future to alleviate the suffering of the people.
