With all the ranting going on about the recent changes on Shahrai Faisal we have some how overlooked a very basic problem. The pedestrian traffic trying to cross this busy street by simply making a run for their life hoping to have timed their sprint to the second.
Pakistanis as we all know have no concept on how to safely cross a busy intersection and usually it is approached as if the street belonged to each individual as their own birth-right to cross, to top this attitude off I have quite often cursed at our black Burqa Clad ladies choosing the night to take a turtle-paced stroll across Shahrai Faisal. Prior to the recent upheaval on this main artery a few life-fearing individuals did at least utilize stoppage in traffic flow at signals to quickly stroll across.
Vehicular traffic is now on a high paced jog for a few km from Jinnah Hospital all the way to Tipu Sultan road signal with not a single break with only two overhead pedestrian bridges being available for pedestrian use, one being close to Aisha Bawany school and the second being located at Nursery which has recently been graced by a recent surge in pedestrian traffic.
