On Friday, Nana Chowk, Tardeo, Worli, Prabhadevi, Mahim and some parts of Byculla will not receive water.
Areas in south and south-central Mumbai will not get water from June 5 to 6 afternoon as additional railway tracks are
being laid along the Tansa mainline.
The Mumbai Vikas Railway Corporation, under the Mumbai Urban Transport Project, is laying fifth and sixth railway tracks between Mahim and Bandra.
However, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has to realign the water main a little deeper.
Part of the work began on Tuesday morning and will be complete by Wednesday afternoon while the rest of the work will start on Friday morning is expected to be completed by Saturday.
Deepak Joshi, executive engineer of the water department, said: “The work will be on for maximum 29 hours. Within this stipulated period the water supply will be stopped. We had informed about the citizens about the work through the media and people are cooperating.”
