Anybody noticed the ‘new-age’ bus stops being put up around some places in the city? I noticed them on Karsaz road and in their current ‘untouched’ state, they look very neat. While the capacity does not seem to be enough for the crowds that we typically have at the bus-stops (that is assuming that our buses stop at designated places at least on the major roads) but the designs are eye-candy. The structure is apparently equipped with an electronically controlled display advertisement area around 3 feet by 2 feet on one side (besides the mandatory sign board on top).
Please share if you’ve spotted these structures elsewhere in the city and what are you comments on the new design. Would it be able to sustain the ‘wrath’ of the public? And the dreaded ‘poster plastering’ that is the fate of every public structure that springs up on our roads of Karachi?
