#GS3 #Transportation #WaterWays
Recently trial run on a new river route from Daudkandi in Bangladesh to Sonamura in Tripura has been inaugurated.
- The route will connect Tripura with Bangladesh using the inland waterways for the first time.
- The cargo ship MV Premier sailed from Daudkandi, which is scheduled to arrive in Sonamura in Tripura after covering a distance of 93 kilometers through river Gumti.
- The opening of the new route follows the signing of the 2nd addendum to the Protocol for Inland Water Trade & Transit (PIWTT) in May 2020 which opened two new routes.
