Karachi Administrator and Commissioner Iftikhar Ali Shallwani said on Sunday that the road carpet in Liaquatabad Area C would be finished in a few hours and stones would also be laid on the paths on both sides of the road.
While visiting the Liaquatabad neighborhood to review work, Shallwani said that Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) was carrying out work, including road construction and renovation, using its own resources.
Director General of KMC’s Department of Works & Services Shabeeh-ul-Hassan Zaidi, District Chief Technician Najeeb Ahmed and other relevant officials were also present at the occasion. The administrator said that the road sector will be developed according to KMC resources. He said that work on replacing the Shah Faisal bridge expansion joint had also started.
It is important to mention here that the extension connections of the Millennium Mall Bridge and the Liaquatabad Bridge have been replaced, while the connections of all remaining bridges will be replaced if necessary.
Shallwani said that the Karachi Water & Sewerage Board only laid pipes in the Liaquatabad area No. 10 but have not reconstructed it, which caused misery for the community.
He said the road that stretches from Liaquatabad to Golimar and Nazimabad is in a condition not suitable for motorized vehicles to pass because people throw a lot of garbage on the road. He added that the situation took a turn for the worse especially at night, when Karachi saw more traffic. He appealed to the public not to throw garbage on the streets and keep it neat and clean.
Administrators direct DG work & services to paint walkways on both sides and continue to remove distractions from the road to ensure smooth flow of traffic. It also orders using high standard materials for long-lasting results. The newly constructed road will be 1,800 feet long by 30 feet wide.
