Clifton dug up

Kashif from Chowrangi has posted pictures of development work being carried out in Clifton. Seems like some serious digging. I think someone told the government about a huge treasure hidden someone in Clifton and now they are digging up the whole place to find it.

    umar; this digging is part of the new storm drains being put in there.

    The pic’s in question are near the bath island turning, right before (or after depending on your point of view) the ramp for clifton bridge.

    This is being going on for quite sometime.. to the extent that the road has been closed permanently now too.

    I think its not only clifton but OUR ENTIRE CITY is an archaeological dig.

    Please don’t spread the rumor of a gold mine under the streets of Karachi to our bureaucrats including Perez (ack) Musharraf who along with his entire team drop all their work and come running to feast on the findings.

    @Mansoor: The road is called Ch. Rehmat Ali Road and it’s dug up since Ramadan. Today I saw heavy machinery lined up near ABL office (across the road from PSO Building) and some sign-boards mentioning storm-water drainage work.

    Dear all,

    Is there any place or any authority where we can complain about the road construction projects lying pending for so long, they dig up the roads to rebuild but never start the work for months. Any email or link would be gratefully appreciated by anyone who can direct to responsible authority.
