There will be no gas supply in several areas of Dhaka city for up to six hours on Thursday, as the gas distribution company is taking up pipeline relocation work.
In a statement, Titas Gas Transmission and Distribution Company said that supply will remain suspended from 10am to 4pm today at Tejkunipara, Tejgaon Girls' School, Kawran Bazar, Khirstan Para, Sonargaon Hotel and Kathalbagan.Other areas to be affected by the supply disruption are Dilu Road, Paribagh, eastern side of Sonargaon Road and western side of Kataban.
According to Titas, supply will be cut off to facilitate relocation of a gas pipeline from Tejgaon Rail Crossing to Sonargaon Hotel. Adjacent areas of the affected locations may also experience low pressure in supply for the same reason, it said.
"Pipeline relocation is part of a route alignment of utilities under the Dhaka Elevated Expressway Project," the company added.
