CM warns PD Karachi Package against work delays on Shahra-e-Faisal

Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah expressing his displeasure has directed Project Director (PD) Karachi Package to expedite construction of u-turn on Shahra-e-Faisal otherwise he will take strict action.
He said this while presiding over a meeting to review some schemes of the Karachi Package which are delayed for one or the other reasons, said a statement issued here on Monday.
The meeting was attended by Chairman P&D Mohammad Waseem, Principal Secretary to CM Sohail Rajput, Secretary Finance Hassan Naqvi, PD Karachi Package Niaz Soomro and Engineer Karachi Package Khalid Masroor.
The chief minister said that the work on the construction of U-Turn at Nathakhan Bridge has not been taken up so far. As a result, traffic jam at that area has become order of the day. The chief minister directed the Chairman P&D Mohammad Waseem to visit the area along with PD and engineer of the project and get the work started and report him.
It may be noted that the chief minister has already released Rs 214.466 million for construction of U-Turn and other works. “When I have released you funds why the work has been delayed,” he asked.
The chief minister also said that the Underpass at Submarine Chowrangi has not been completed so far. “I want to open its one track on December 15 and on the same day would perform stone lying ceremony of Flyover at Sunset Boulevard,” he added.
He directed the Local Government Department to maintain the beauty of Shahrah-e-Faisal by planting more plants and other greenery. Shahrar-e-Faisal is the face of the city and it must be beautiful, neat and clean and illuminated, he said.
Principal Secretary Sohial Rajput told the chief minister that he had held a meeting with some architects for face uplifting of the areas falling in front of Jinnah Terminal on Shahrah-e-Faisal.
Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah directed the PD Karachi Package to start survey of the roads of old city of Lyari such as Lee Market, Mitha Dar, Khara Dar, Jhuna Market, Cheel Chowk, Kalakot and other areas.—APP
