Gwadar: The Gwadar Development Authority (GDA) has launched various development schemes to facilitate the upgradation of tourist sites and roads infrastructure in the port city, a news source reported. Further, the local administration has been tasked with ensuring the provision of basis amenities to the area’s residents.
As per officials, the Balochistan government recently undertook several measures in its bid to develop Gwadar’s infrastructure. Among these planned initiatives include the construction of a modern monument at Mala Fazal Chowk – expected to be established under the city’s recently unveiled master plan – and the development of additional hotels and motels for tourism promotion.
Moreover, a major chunk of the city’s development budget has been allocated for the construction and repair of roads. Previously, the provincial executive had announced its decision to construct the East-Bay Expressway to allow the smooth flow of traffic on the thoroughfares leading to the Gwadar Port as well as major highways.
A six-kilometre long sewerage line is also part of the provincial government’s development agenda. The first and second phases of the project will cost PKR 570 million and PKR 750 million respectively. Gwadar will also get a state-of-the-art hospital with modern health facilities.
