The garbage doesn't go away, but blocks most of the sewage drainages & ends up in liyari nudee or beaches.

The city usually ignores effective ways to deal with its grabage disposal

So that people on Sh. Faisal going towards Saddar can make a right turn or u-turn under the bridge, and so that people can take left turns and u-turns from the other side as well. There used to be a signal here and it was a major clog point.

CDGK seeks approval of 12 mega projects

The City District Government Karachi (CDGK) has prepared a summary regarding 12 mega development projects in the city worth Rs 2 billion scheduled to start this fiscal year.

The approval of provincial authorities has been sought for four new flyovers, six major avenues, a storm water drain and a causeway on Malir River.

This was stated at a high level meting of CDGK officials convened by City Administrator Fazlur Rehman at the district coordination officer’s camp office on Thursday, where CDGK works and services executive district officer (EDO) Rasheed Mughal briefed the city administrator on the mega projects.

Mughal revealed that the proposed sites for flyovers included the Korangi Crossing and a point near Abbasi Shaheed Hospital. These two projects were estimated to cost Rs 350 million each.

Another flyover, costing Rs 200 million, would be constructed at the Ibn-e Sina Road, which would connect storm water drains of Korangi and Gujjar Nullah, he said.

He said that to streamline vehicular volume and reduce traffic gridlocks, the administrator has proposed immediate construction of six roads.

The new roads have been proposed from Model Colony Avenue to Khokhrapar (Rs100 million), from Paracha Chowrangi to Northern Bypass (Rs 300 million) and a 4.5-km road from Mausamyat Chowrangi to Super Highway (Rs 200 million).

The cost of construction of roads around Banaras Chowk and adjacent areas has been estimated at Rs 782 million, while a road from Manghopir mazar to Surjani Chowrangi would cost around Rs 150 million.

In order to resolve the issue of storm water accumulation, the CDGK would also construct a storm water drain from Shahrah-e-Noor Jahan to Dr Ziauddin Hospital with an estimated cost of Rs 200 million. On the occasion, the city administrator directed the officer to complete the mega projects within the timeframe as specified in PC-I. He added that the bridge on Malir River should be of double track, which must be completed within the estimated cost of Rs 150 million.

Rehman further asked the EDO that to conduct a detailed survey of key roundabouts where traffic volume remained overwhelmingly high.

The CDGK might then prepare a strategic plan for reshaping of roads and constructing more flyovers, he stated.

While talking to Daily Times, Rehman said the coalition government especially Sindh governor Dr Ishratul Ibad, Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah and the local government minister despite tremendous difficulties, have supported the onward development projects to keep moving and give a boost to local investors and industry.

He said amid various challenges such as flood and influx of flood victims, CDGK departments especially works and services was preparing the PC-I of mega projects. The Sindh Planning and Development Department has already forwarded PC-I documents to the Sindh technical committee for final approval.

“We are ready to launch the mega projects within 24 hours of receiving the final approval and maintain world standards,” vowed Rehman.

He said these mega projects would open new avenues for economic activity and create employment opportunities for locals.

They would also provide sustainable routes for industry, transport sector, labourers, contractors and others and would further improve the city’s aesthetics, he concluded.

We really need a flyover at Korangi Crossing. Hope they build it. But that place isn't wide enough for the construction to take place while the traffic still flows. I wonder if they will close off the junction until construction happens. That would be much worse for those of us whose universities are in Korangi (CBM, BizTech, KIET)

Administrator Fazlur Rehman taking strict notice of the breaking of Sharae Faisal–Rashid Minhas Road Flyover

During the meeting Administrator Fazlur Rehman has while taking strict notice of the breaking of Sharae Faisal–Rashid Minhas Road Flyover directed EDO Works & Services to appoint the consultant without delay so that the repair of flyover, change of its roof or construction of new flyover could be decided. The EDO W&S on this occasion said that the bridge was not having any serious problem and it was only due to the plying of more heavy goods carrier and trailers on this bridge that has caused some problem and this will be solved with the change of slab of flyover. He further said that planning was underway in coordination with the traffic police to provide alternate way for heavy trailers and goods carriers.
