KARACHI – Karachi administrator Laeeq Ahmed said on Thursday that a 97,000 square foot road had been built in Karimabad as it is an important area in the Central District. “Seeing that the road conditions in the area are dilapidated, work has begun to make it accessible to motorbikes. This will help solve the problem of traffic jams in Karimabad and its commercial area and keep traffic flowing, “the Administrator said while inspecting road construction under the Engineering Department in Karimabad, said a statement.
Ahmed said KMC used its machinery and labor force to reconstruct roads across the city. After surveying and inspecting various areas, this work is being carried out on a priority basis so that KMC Karachi’s resources can be used to improve the city’s infrastructure and citizens can take advantage of it, he added.
Administrators said that areas where traffic congestion is high and people commuting 24 hours is important to improve and keep roads clear. Improving the road network in the densely populated Central District will also help shorten distances and save fuel.
He said the Ministry of Works field team was carrying out reconstruction work on various roads and arteries wherever it was needed. The department is directed to complete the work without delay so that the community can be facilitated as soon as possible.
Previously, roads from Fresco Chowk to Old NED Campus, roads in Shahra-e-Qaedin, Malir, Korangi UC-15, Landi Kotal Chowrangi North Nazimabad have been repaired and rehabilitated which will help improve basic infrastructure.
He said that road rehabilitation work would also continue without interruption in the future. “The development goal should be to provide all possible facilities for citizens as that is the primary responsibility of local agencies,” he added.
The administrator directs the Department of Works to formulate a priority-based road repair and reconstruction strategy where needed.
“Planning ahead must be carried out in light of past experiences, Ministry of Work officials must play their part in this and work continuously to improve the city,” said Ahmed while pointing out that the work that will facilitate citizens should be done based on priority. .
