Recall that Bago had ordered the structure’s demolition on May 29, 2023, during his inauguration speech, because it stood on a major water supply pipeline.

 

It was discovered that the station has sat on a major water supply pipeline for more than a decade and could impede the state government’s new strategy to improve water distribution.
