The objectives of the Project are to (i) improve the ambient air quality in Dhaka; (ii) develop the use of domestic natural gas resources for the transport sector to substitute for imported liquid fuels, thereby improving the foreign exchange position of the country and (iii) establish a foundation for private sector participation in the future development of CNG-fueled transport.
The Project has six components:
Part A: Construction of a 60 km 20 inch natural gas transmission pipeline between Dhanua and Aminbazar, Savar ad two city gate stations (CGSs) at Ashulia and Savar.
