Road building and breaking.

It seems that we are, at heart, a nation of road-breakers. The entire road opposite the Aga Khan University Hospital (AKUH) has been dug up for weeks now, and I don’t see any work being done on it whenever I pass by, though I could be wrong as I’m not a resident of the area. Its a major inconvenience to students of the two colleges in the vicinity and the patients and doctors at AKUH and the neighboring Liaquat National Hospital. When will the country’s road builders and road breakers learn that not every road can be upturned and left untouched for months?!?!

    i think we need something like a flyover at the time medico intersection more than a reconstructed road. it’s fast becoming a hotspot for traffic jams.

    What I think is that since most of the road building and carpeting is outsourced to independent contractors, they in their greed, usually digs up a road and proceeds to complete another leftover project. This way they get to do more than one job at the same time, which results them more income and hence, more profit in the shortest possible time.
