Getting their acts together

After getting used to the government assigned contractors digging up the roads without any warning or providing any alternative routes for the traffic, it was a nice surprise to see the contractors of Gharibabad underpass first moving the utility lines from the center of the road to the side roads, then completely reconstructing the side road complete with steel needed to support the weight and then providing proper access to it. All this before digging up the main road in order to minimize the hardship of those who have to take this route on the daily basis. I guess the spirit of development is catching on all the way from the top to bottom.

    Well, they certainly have got their acts together. Take a look at streets around hasan square, block 13-D3. First the road coming toward the Gillani railway station track (to waseem bagh) from Gala resturant was closed and now they have closed ramp itself. It’s a complete mess there. They havent bothered to put some sort of sign there and people have to reach the ramp to realize road is closed ahead and then turn back to seek another way out. The adjoining roads are all dirt and smoke. Government has no empathy for children, sick and old people who are suffering from this mess.
