Su­per­mar­ket open­ing in Gul­shan area causes traf­fic jam

Pakistan Observer - - KARACHI CITY -

KARACHI—The open­ing of a su­per­mar­ket on main Rashid Min­has Road in Gul­shan-e-Iqbal has turned out to be a source of nui­sance — not alone for the area res­i­dents, but also for mo­torists who ply the ma­jor thor­ough­fare.

Huge traf­fic jams were wit­nessed in the area af­ter the out­let’s open­ing on Fri- day. Com­muters were left stranded in the grid­lock for hours, leav­ing traf­fic po­lice help­less in clear­ing snarl-ups.

The su­per­mar­ket was rather a bane for com­muters as the jour­ney of a few minutes took sev­eral hours which tested their pa­tience un­der the scorch­ing sun.

The ab­sence of proper and suf­fi­cient park­ing fa­cil­i­ties at the su­per­mar­ket is the main rea­son be­hind the chaos. It may be men­tioned that an­other fa­mous su­per­mar­ket is also lo­cated across op­po­site sec­tion of the road. Chief Min­is­ter Sindh Qaim Ali Shah has taken no­tice of the in­ci­dent and ordered an in­quiry into the il­le­gal park­ing out­side the su­per­mar­ket.—INP
