Sohrab Goth Flyover

After years (two to be exact) of problems, the sohrab goth flyover is finally to be opened this friday for traffic. Though work is still in the middle, vehicles will be able to use atleast part of the flyover alleviating some of the traffic problems of the area.

The Sohrab Goth Flyover, one of the three grand flyovers of the city, (the other two being Jinnah bridge and the under-construction Korangi Flyover), was started back in 2005. For a long time in between, work was abandoned on the project, due to a tiff between the contractor and the government. The result was an almost unpassable intersection, which connects Super Highyway to the city, and North Karachi accesible to gulshan and SF.

The reason sohrab goth flyover is considered ‘grand’ is because of its unique design. It was to become the first clover-leaf styled structure here, with three ‘leafs’ overhead, and the last going through an underpass below it. As such, it was to make commuting painless when it was planned, but the implementation (as with many other projects) turned out to be more of a problem than solution.
