Karachi never had a master plan: Kamal

The development of Karachi took place without any Master Plan during the last 60 years and the city comprises over 40 Katchi Abadees, City Nazim Mustafa Kamal has said.

He said that 822 Goths and 435 Katchi Abadis were leased but still there were 2,500 rural Abadis and many of them were such where neither ambulance nor fire brigade could go inside.

Kamal was talking to a group of students from the Bahawalpur Islamic University, who are currently on a study visit here. The students had called on him at his office.

The city nazim said that because of the initiatives taken by the city government, Karachi was included by the World Economic Forum among the 12 big cities of the world where economy was progressing fast. This will not only benefit the people of Karachi but the entire country, because Karachi contributes 68 per cent revenue to the national exchequer, he said.

The four baby elephants imported from Tanzania became center of attention on Thursday when more than 3500 citizens including mostly kids and women watched them with keen interest for two hours at the temporary sheds in Safari Park.

On this occasion kids and women also took pictures with baby elephants and feed them with fruits.
This may be noted that City District Government Karachi had imported four baby elephants from the tropical country of Tanzania and they were presently housed in temporarily sheds in Safari park.
Earlier a panel of veterinary experts had examined them and certified them to be strong enough to withstand the pressure of the joyous visitors.

District Officer Safari Park Raza Abbas Rizvi has said that citizens can see baby elephants at Safari Park daily from 6 to 8pm.
WOW!! What awesome updates for the thread! :eek:

Strict security measures planned for Karachi harbour from August 1

Tuesday, July 07, 2009
By Jan Khaskheli

Karachi

Karachi Fish Harbour Authority (KFHA) has designed a comprehensive plan to ensure strict security at the harbour premises in light of the increasing fear of terrorism and lawlessness. This is also part of the recommendations of the European Union (EU) to control congestion at the harbour, sources told The News.

According to plan, with the start of new fishing season from August 1, every official associated with KFHA, Fishermen Cooperative Society (FCS), Marine Fisheries Department (MFD) and seafood factories, traders, boat owners, crew and market people would have to display their identity cards when entering the their respective jurisdictions.

The market area would be declared a ‘Red Zone’, where only those concerned would be allowed to enter, while outsiders would be restricted. Identity cards shall be categorised according to the personal and official status, sources said.

Gates demarcating the areas are being set up at different locations and before commencement of the new fishing season, the plan would be implemented to step up the security in the entire vicinity, in order to avert any possibility of lawlessness.

After implementation of this plan, the next security phase shall cover the main gates around the harbour, which would be fully guarded with trained squad.

For implementing this security plan, the Karachi Fish Harbour Authority—under the supervision of Secretary Fisheries Department, Mir Mohammed Parhyar—has assigned Abuzer Mariwala, FCS advisory committee member, local fishermen community representatives and former chairman major tasks. The KFHA has also availed services of National Police Foundation, which would provide 120 personnel—40 each for three shifts to ensure security at the unsafe city harbour. The force could be beefed up in due time with consideration of the needs and conditions.

Sources revealed that implementing the EU-designed standards within harbour jurisdictions is not an easy task, as they are facing resistance from various quarters. However, they are optimistic about achieving the desired result. Sources said that the community, workforce and crew want to carry on with the old methods for off-loading boats. For instance, many still want use Chally, however it is against EU standards. The authorities have bought huge stocks of plastic crates to replace the traditional Chally at the harbour to keep the seafood safe.

Sources added that the community people are used to Chally and several families are engaged in manufacturing of the same in the Lyari neighbourhood. Two months ago, members of the community opposed the KFHA that had launched moves to replace it with plastic crates. However, the sources also maintain that the authority is in a position to ensure use of crates to so that export to EU countries could be initiated.

KFHA has, according to officials, initiated the use of crates at K-II and K-III market areas, and the measure would soon be replicated at other areas too. Sources claim that the next fishing season—beginning from August 1—would usher in change at the harbour.

Meanwhile, the community remain vocal against the officials concerned, and believe that the authority requires political will to achieve its target. They allege that both the government and semi-government institutions at the harbour are manned by non-technical people, thereby explaining their “inefficient and incompetent role”.

Skyscraper projects bill to be moved in PA soon

KARACHI, July 6: A bill aimed at giving a legal cover to the Sindh government’s ambitious plan of allowing construction of skyscrapers in the high-density zone of the city’s central business district will be shortly presented before the assembly for its approval.
The bill is currently being vetted by the law department. Once passed into law, it will bring about major infrastructural changes to the city’s central business district.

The Karachi Building Control Authority’s plan to allow the construction of skyscrapers in the high-density zone of the central business district also envisages a separate water supply system, a power plant, a light rail system, a rapid bus transit system and new arteries for the zone.

Highlighting salient features of the plan that Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah had already approved, KBCA Chief Controller Manzoor Qadir told Dawn that once the law was introduced, the KBCA would permit builders to construct 40-plus-storey buildings in selected areas of the central business district. He added that the areas were I.I. Chundrigar Road (from Tower to Sheraton Hotel), from Hoshang Baracho Road to Do Talwar roundabout, from Tower to Queens Road, from Mai Kolachi to Sub-Marine Chowk and from Shireen Jinnah Colony to 26th Street including the seafront of Clifton’s blocks 1, 2, 3 and 4.

Asked whose brainchild the plan was and how the gigantic project would be financed, he said that President Asif Ali Zardari, who wished to develop the central business district on a par with most-modern countries of the world, was evincing keen interest in the project. He added that the federal government had promised to provide seed money for its infrastructure’s development. Besides, builders/developers would pay ‘betterment charges’ to the KBCA, which would be utilised to develop/improve the business district’s infrastructure. He disclosed that under the plan each builder seeking approval of a skyscraper’s building plan would be required to pay Rs150 million to the KBCA.

He said that the construction of 40-plus-storey buildings would not be allowed on plots measuring less than 5,000 square yards. Besides, it would be made mandatory upon a builder/developer of a skyscraper to provide 75 per cent additional parking space for visitors on a rental basis. For instance, if occupants of a highrise required parking space for 1,000 vehicles the builder should provide space for parking of 1,700 vehicles, he explained.

When asked if the central business district had the adequate space required for carving out new arteries to ease traffic congestion and to provide modern transport services to commuters in the high density zone, Mr Qadir replied in the affirmative, saying that a vast area of land existed in the heart of the business district and in the peripheries. He said that roads could be built in slums like Shireen Jinnah Colony, Machhar Colony and Sultanabad as well as along Mauripur’s seafront, which would give a beautiful look to the high density zone of the central business district.

Urban planners being invited The KBCA’s chief controller said that tenders would be floated within a couple of days inviting reputed international urban planners to undertake extensive urban design studies for the development of a comprehensive urban plan for the central business district. The process to appoint urban planners would be completed in a fortnight, he added.

He expressed the hope that the successful bidders would come up with a comprehensive plan for the business district within six to eight months.

In reply to a question whether the consent of the city’s architects and planners was sought before making the skyscraper plan, Mr Qadir said that although the KBCA had proposed the high-rise projects on all the 23 declared commercial roads in the city, a high-level committee of eminent architects and planners had recommended that the projects should be introduced initially at two zones of the city. The zones comprise I.I. Chundrigar Road, Mai Kolachi, seafront area of Clifton’s blocks 1, 2, 3 and 4, Shireen Jinnah Colony and the other on Sharea Faisal, Shahrah-iQuaideen, Tariq Road and Khalid Bin Waleed Road.
