Gas supply to Dhaka's Mirpur and surrounding areas will be stopped for ten hours on Monday while a supply line is shifted for the ongoing metro rail construction.
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.
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 refueling 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 Metro Rail Project..
