Gurugram: At least 25 CNG stations will remain closed from Saturday afternoon till Monday evening in Gurugram. The stations will be closed to facilitate rerouting of gas pipeline in the district. The temporary shutdown will begin from 1 pm on Saturday, and will reopen from 6 pm on Monday.
The Haryana City Gas Distribution Limited, which is the sole supplier of CNG in the city, has said that the decision is taken by the upstream gas supplier Gas Authority of India Limited (GAIL). The CGPL gas pipeline at IFFCO Chowk and will be rerouted due to the ongoing construction work of underpass on Delhi-Gurugram expressway. In order to avoid inconvenience, consumers are advised to have alternate arrangements during the prescribed period and refuel before the temporary shutdown begins.
However, the gas supply to PNG customers, both domestic and industrial, will remain unaffected.
The 24 hours shutdown will affect the supply of automotive fuel to all consumers. Last year also Haryana City Gas Distribution Limited closed six stations because of shifting of pipeline due to expansion of NH-8 at IFFCO Chowk, Signature Tower.
