KARACHI: The Local Government has planned to move the heavy traffic to the Lyari Expressway to avoid traffic congestion.
According to the City Administrator, Murtaza Wahab, the heavy traffic traveling along the roads within the city has been causing traffic bottlenecks. Therefore, the infrastructure will be upgraded to improve the traffic flow.
While meeting with the President of Karachi Goods and Carrier Association, Noor Khan Niazi, the Administrator disclosed that the government would soon acquire 1,000 acres of land near Northern Bypass, which would be used as a truck stand, keeping them away from the city.
He added that the trucks often parked in the city resulted in traffic jams; therefore, this step would aid in solving this issue.
It is pertinent to mention that the trucks also threaten life as they are always filled with extremely flammable substances, like fuel, etc. Thus, the government has decided to keep them parked outside the main city.
The city administration also shared that the government along with the traders will work to make the city liveable and risk-free and will also welcome any suggestions to improve the development efforts.
