11 new pedestrian bridges being built
KARACHI, Dec 20: The Karachi Metropolitan Corporation is building pedestrian bridges at 11 locations and work on a few of them has already started while all the bridges will be completed within a couple of months, a KMC statement issued on Thursday said.

It added that the bridges were being built to stop road accidents and help people cross various roads where the movement of traffic was very high.

The selected sites, according to the statement, included Sharea Faisal near New Jinnah terminal flyover, Stadium Road near Khatoon-i-Pakistan College and Aga Khan Hospital, Shaheed-i-Millat Expressway near Iqra University, Shaheed-i-Millat Expressway near Azam Basti, Shaheed-i-Millat Expressway near Manzoor Colony, Gulistan-i-Johar near Darul Sehat Hospital, Rashid Minhas Road near KDA Flats, Korangi No 4 near Government College for Women, M.A. Jinnah Road near Humdard Hospital and Capri Cinema, Nawab Siddique Ali Khan Road near Farooq-i-Azam Mosque and Shah Waliullah Road near Café Today.

KMC administrator Mohammad Hussain Syed while visiting a model pedestrian bridge being constructed near the Khatoon-i-Pakistan College on Stadium Road on Thursday said that the bridge sites had been selected after consultation with experts of traffic engineering and conducting surveys by departments concerned.

He said that proper lighting arrangements on these pedestrian bridges would be made to help people using these bridges during the night, the statement added.

He said work on some places, including the Khatoon-i-Pakistan College, Gulistan-i-Johar near Darul Sehat Hospital, Rashid Minhas Road near KDA Flats and Korangi No 4 Government College for Women, had already started while at other places it would be started soon.

He directed officials concerned to increase the speed of construction work of new pedestrian bridges and repair work of those pedestrian bridges that had broken down and were in a poor condition.
