Home » Karachi

Karachi: Battered and pot-holed Garden Road has become a grave security risk for the police as traffic, including police mobile vans, moves very slowly and sometime remained stranded for longer period on this important artery housing the sensitive buildings of Police Headquarters Garden.

The important artery of the main city area, Aga Khan III Road, commonly known as Garden Road is presently in a shabby condition and needs urgent repair.

This road that links the Garden area to the M A Jinnah Road houses many important buildings like PMA House, Police Headquarters Garden and Zoological Garden. Famous Makki Masjid, officers housing colony and many important hospitals, and clinics are situated along this road. This road also serves as an important link to the Lyari Expressway.

However, due to poor sewerage system and use of substandard material in past repair and renovation work of this road, it is now in broken and pot-holed condition and needs urgent repair through a reliable contractor who can use standard material.

This important road is also being used by senior bureaucrats and police officers, besides thousands of the visitors of the Zoological Garden also use this street. It needs removal of encroachments from its footpaths, repair of its faulty drainage system and a proper re-carpeting of the road on urgent basis to facilitate citizens.

Commuters and motorists who use this busy street on regular basis have appealed to the Chief Minister of Sindh, Syed Murad Ali Shah to pay a personal visit to this road and order its urgent and quality repair in larger public interest.
