Karachi: The City District Government Karachi (CDGK) will construct more than six flyovers and u-turns at Sharea Faisal to make the city’s busiest artery a signal-free road from the Quaid-e-Azam International Airport to the Jinnah Bridge at PIDC.
The proposed fourth signal-free corridor (SFC) of the city will cost Rs2.9billion. The amount has been allocated in the next budget.
Meanwhile, City Nazim Mustafa Kamal has directed the Works & Services Executive District Officer (EDO) to start work on the preliminary formalities without delay so that this project can begin as soon as possible.
According to the plan, a right-turn flyover will be constructed near the FTC Flyover, for traffic from the Airport to Saddar, while a two-lane flyover will be constructed from Lucky Star to Jinnah Hospital to reduce traffic volume at the signal.
Two twin-lane flyovers would also be constructed at the Metropole Hotel, Hotel Mehran and PIDC Roundabout to facilitate traffic moving from Metropole Hotel towards Saddar Cantt, from Clifton to the Saddar area, and from Saddar to PIDC.[The News]
