Federal, Sindh Govt Join Hands to Work on Road Projects

KARACHI: In a meeting at CM House, Sindh Chief Minister, Syed Murad Ali Shah, and Federal Minister for Communication, Asad Mahmood, decided to improve communication between the provincial government and the National Highway Authority (NHA) to ensure that ongoing road sector schemes of the NHA in the province could be finished on schedule.

The CM said the N-120 Hyderabad-Khokhrapar through Mirpurkhas Road was 220 km long, 120 km of which were being built by the NHA between Mirpurkhas and Khokhrapar via Umerkot.

He stated that there were two further road segments; 80 km long (Mirpurkhas-Umerkot) and 40 km long (Umerkot-Khokhrapar).

As per the details, the remaining 20 kilometers from Umerkot to Khokhrapar (Raja Rasti), or 60 kilometers, of the 80 kilometers between Mirpurkhas and Umerkot, have not yet seen any construction.

The CM said that the route from Umerkot to Khokhrapar had been damaged by the recent torrential rains.

The federal minister assured the chief minister that the work would be expedited and gave the NHA instructions to fix the broken areas.

Furthermore, the chief minister also addressed the Jamshoro-Sehwan road issues and stated that the NHA was building the 130 km-long route.

He said that the work began in 2018–19 and even though it was an NHA asset, his administration also provided Rs. 700 million for renovation.

The work had been expedited on all the pending road projects, according to the federal minister, but there were still some land acquisition concerns that needed to be resolved.

Besides, the federal minister also informed the chief minister that construction on the Hyderabad-Sukkur Motorway would soon begin.
