Burst water pipeline damages road


A road near Karachi’s Liaquatbad suffered major damage on Saturday after a water pipeline in the area burst. The damage worsened when a truck got stuck on the road. The road has now been closed for public use.
“It has been a week since the pipeline burst,” said a resident of the area. “Officials of the Karachi Water and Sewerage Board never got it repaired.”
According to the truck driver, he was driving a truck full of gravel to Saddar when it got stuck on the road.
“We had called for a crane, but it wasn’t equipped enough to pull the truck,” said a traffic police officer. “We have called for another one.
The water board teams come and leave but never properly repair the pipelines.”
The traffic police officer added that the road has been blocked for the public, which is affecting the traffic in nearby areas.—INP
