That narrow road, how are they going to construct that loop of underpass? They will use park's area of jahangir kothari parade for that loop of park tower underpass.
And 2nd underpass in middle will be only for Icon tower i think. There is no road there.

Good news that Bahria town is investing in Infrastructure projects. I have also heard that Malik Riyaz is interested in Metro Bus or Metro Rail in Karachi which will also approached to Bahria town.

Here i understand something from the above plan. 1st flyover will reached to the last red mark. blue marks are for underpass while black one is a new road will build between park and icon tower.

That under-pass 1 is only for BT Icon entrance and exit, towards park towers and towards 70 Riviera/Dolmen. Flyover and UP-2 will be used by public but up-1 is only for those going to BT Icon and Clifton aquarium.
They are serious about Icon project that's why pouring Rs 1.89 arab in this infrastructure for icon

This is a horrible project and will ruin the whole area. That's a nice, quiet area and will be spoiled with all these flyovers. I'm as opposed to this as building a flyover on Club Road and along Shahra e Faisal.

Flyovers are not the solution to every traffic issue.

First Malik Riaz is massively expanding that stupid mazar which will bring all kinds of lowlifes here and now he's destroying the place with flyovers. But with Zardari as his partner he can do anything he wants.

I think he is building it for the future, because the traffic will increase quite alot just imagine how many countless of extra cars will be joining this road!

Just look at Centaurus in Isloo that is creating such a traffic mess around it!

But I know you love Karachi and that's why you have a valid point! I have the same feeling with metro bus in Isloo!

To be honest, i really like malik riaz. He grabs land by illegal means but he's committed to the development of the country. Always try to help country whether its by donation or other means.SALUTE to malik riaz.
Hope well do some business in future.

Yes Malik Riaz is a good crook. But I think he's building all these projects in Karachi with Zardari's money as a way for Zardari to park his looted wealth. This whole neighborhood is being re-engineered to maximize the value of their investment at the cost of the city's residents.

I find it frustrating that the people of Karachi have no say in anything related to their city. Everything in the city is controlled by others--federal government, provincial government, local services, army, rangers, police--nothing is in the control of people from the city. Taxes are collected from Karachi but nothing is spent on it.

Then when the city goes to the dogs everyone blames the people in the city for not getting their act together.

In this case Malik Riaz announces a "gift" to Karachi but who exactly allowed it? There's supposed to be some system of getting planning permission and approvals and also input from citizens. Was any such process followed?

Everything related to Zardari is bad news and that's why I'm not too excited at the construction of Icon Tower. If it's not completed before Zardari is overthrown it will probably sit uncompleted for decades after.

Let's say that Malik Riaz announces a flyover in some historic area of Lahore. Would he be able to do that without the approval of Shahbaz Sharif and the elected representatives of Lahore? Probably not. Same in Peshawar or any other city.

But in Karachi the people of the city have no say and anyone can do whatever they want.
