Where are side walks

hmm.. since you have visited many places as you have clarified in enough threads .. would you be kind enough to tell us mere, local desi how many greenbelts you see in Manhattan or Newyork (not talking about greenbelt park here just in case you get confused) for that matter or downtown Houston or Downtown Toronto, Or downtown london etc etc etc...
Manhattan has huge side walks on every street. A lot of trees every corner and plenty of plantation. Union square has nice park in busiest area, Herald square has public seating area, and even times square has public seating areas all around.
Seriously, Toronto.......have huge, huge, huge...sidewalks and plenty of greenery. Walk along central park where Trump towers are and then you will see green belts and plenty of free space for people. Look at sidewalks on both sides of park ave.

In fact every city in world has huge side walks. How many overhead bridges you see in Manhattan, downtown Toronto or in central London. Point any overhead bridge in LA, Miami, Paris. Look at Dubai and Singapore and tell me they do not have open space, sidewalks and public areas.

Its not all about having greenbelts it is how city looks when you walk through it. A combination of decent side walks, plantation and cleanliness and minimum flyovers which cover the road like roof (like what they have done to Ferozepur road).

How dumb one has to be to compare an arterial thoroughfare of Lahore with local streets in other cities?

Exactly, throughway does not run through heart of city. Show me how many through are running through Manhattan, Toronto, Central London, Paris.

BTW Lahore does not have any through way just ugly looking dumb short overhead bridges destroying the look and space of city. First you need to know what is throughway. My suggestion google it to have a understanding.

Throughfare can be a road that connects two places or it can be a main road. Throughfare can run through the heart of the city, and it is important to have a throughfare through the centre of the city to accomodate the road users who travel there daily for work or business but live elsewhere.

I have seen through fares in Beijing & Shanghai, but they are very well planned and executed. Overall impression and presentation of the cities is not disturbed. We over here with lda super planner messed up Lahore. Lda plans one new thing with short term planning and mess up with others.

Ahhh. So only you've been to other cities of the world. Ahhh ha.
Most major populated cities are full of concrete.

No offense but there is a difference between planned construction and unplanned destruction. LDA babus don't know abc of city planning. There is no sense of aesthetics. Still better than what's going on in rest of provinces tho.
