Facilitating Metro Rail Project: Mirpur gas supply to stop for 10 hours

No gas supply in Mirpur for 10 hours
Gas supply will remain suspended for 10 hours on Monday at Mirpur and adjoining areas in Dhaka due to relocation of gas pipelines to facilitate Metro Rail Project.

According to a press release of the Titas Gas Transmission and Distribution Company Ltd, the gas supply will be cut off to the east and west sides of Mirpur-12 to Chiriakhana (Zoo) Road from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm, reports UNB.

The affected localities will include Mirpur - 1, 2, 6, 7, 10, 11 and 12, Eastern Housing, Rupnagar, Arambagh, Alubdi, Mirpur Cantonment and also adjacent areas.

The supply will disrupt all kinds of consumers including household, commercial, industrial and CNG refuelling stations in these areas.

Residents of Mirpur have grown accustomed to such day-long shutdowns over the last one and half years. 

The pipeline replacement work has been necessitated by the start of construction as part of the Mass Rapid Transit Development under the Dhaka Metro Rail Project.
