Sources have said that more than 20 Goths of PS-88 were being saved by changing the design of Malir Expressway.
According to sources, the new route will now divert the expressway after the Quaidabad Bridge, which will greatly reduce the damage to people’s homes and agricultural lands.Officials say most of the land on the new route is government-owned.
