According to the authorities, a 72-inch diameter sewage line leading to Ziauddin Ahmed Road collapsed on July 30 creating a massive crater on the road. Fortunately, no one was harmed or injured due to the incident.
Sindh government will use Rs. 1.5 billion for the rehabilitation of People’s Bus Service routes. Chief Minister (CM) Murad Ali Shah approved the project during a provincial cabinet meeting.
CM has told the transport department to cooperate with the local government to speed-up repairs. During the meeting, CM learned that all seven routes had several problems such as potholes, obstructive intersections, damaged sewage lines, etc. “I want both departments to complete the work within 40 days,” CM said.
Transport minister Sharjeel Memon told the CM that the efforts are being fast-tracked to rehabilitate the remaining bus routes.
