Gas supply out in Mirpur Thursday

Gas supply across a vast area of Mirpur and its adjoining localities remains suspended since 8 am because of the relocation of gas pipelines to facilitate construction of the Dhaka Metro Rail Project, reports UNB.

The areas where gas supply remains suspended are located on both sides of the main road from Mirpur -10 Circle to Agargaon, Monipur, Kazipara, Sewrapara, Pirerbagh, Barabagh, Senpara, Agargaon, Ibrahimpur, North Kafrul, Parbata, Taltala, Mirpur-14, Kachukhet, Kalayanpur, Shyamoli, Pikepara and Ansar Camp.

The supply will remain halted to all kinds of consumers including household, commercial, industrial and CNG refueling stations in these areas till 8 pm Thursday.

Residents of Mirpur and adjoining areas complained that they have been suffering frequently from such shutdowns, ever since work commenced on the Metro Rail Project in the area around a year ago.

Many of them alleged that the contractors appointed for the relocation of gas pipelines have been working very slowly over prolonged period, which ultimately delays the whole project’s completion.
