The heart of Karachi’s financial district is I.I.Chundrigar Road. Just off the West Wharf, the road is home to head offices of almost all the major banks of the country in addition to a number of multinationals. The road is also a nightmare to navigate by car. At any point of time between 8:30 am to 7 pm, the traffic is bumper to bumper with donkey carts, swerving minivans and buses thrown in for a bit of dodge-em car practice.
I feel its time the city government took some steps towards rectifying the traffic situation there as well as the unimaginable pollution. I feel its time to invest in setting up parking multiplexes off the road, closing the road for privately owned cars during the day and starting a shuttle service. Any thoughts?
