The city gas supply to 16,200 households in Jwadong and Jung 1-dong in Busan, Haeundae-gu was cut off around 5:30 pm yesterday.
The decision to cut off the gas supply was because of twisted gas pipes that caused gas to escape through the steel frame of a studio apartment building construction site around Jangsan subway station and the 40 to 50 meter road around the construction site collapsed at 3:35 pm yesterday.
Busan City Gas Corporation and Korea Gas Safety Corporation took emergency measures, and cut off the gas supply to start emergency repair work.
Gas supply was resumed around 9 pm yesterday.
