Big projects brings big prob­lems

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - ILMA IR­FAN

Re­cently the Fed­eral gov­ern­ment has launched a de­vel­op­ment project, Green Line Bus (BRTS); the civil work and con­struc­tion of the Project has, there­fore, been ini­ti­ated in the city. The res­i­dents of the Cen­tral Dis­trict Karachi are fac­ing so much trou­ble these days be­cause the main roads of North Naz­imabad have blocked, some roads, with a lot of dig­ging, are left unat­tended thus re­sult­ing in traf­fic jams in this area.

No­body is will­ing to take re­spon­si­bil­ity to solve this prob­lem. The ab­sence of ac­count­abil­ity is lead­ing to feel­ing of frus­tra­tion in pub­lic. Au­thor­i­ties should take no­tice, ear­mark and as­sign al­ter­nate traf­fic routes and Po­lice be geared up to vig­i­lantly reg­u­late the traf­fic flow in the ar­eas un­der the de­vel­op­ment project ac­tiv­ity. — Via email
