Chairlifts at Safari, A Fun ride or Maybe not.

http://karachi.metblogs.com/archives/images/2006/06/jamash01-thumb.jpg

The Chairlifts installed at Safari park seems really fun to ride at first but if you want to take a ride on one of these you better get your self insured because at the end of their loop they pass dangerously close to the high tensions power lines which have 10,000 volts of current passing through them.

Well! I don’t want to be sitting in one of those even if they were totally free. Do you ?

    Any idea if those wires are insulated or not?

    Jamash – Welcome on board.

    You have raised a very valid point about the high-tension wires, we all better watch out that someone may appear as a fully charged magnet upon his arrival at base station.

    Open space reserved for High-tension wires is actually for safety and our brilliant architects decided to go near it – not surprising

    Thank you :) .

    You are right, these wires are supposed to pass from remote areas because they emit a lot of radiation and are highly dangerous.

    You may have noticed the high-tension wires near Schon Circle, they run across the road and over the side of the road by which there are a lot of nurseries and Bed n bath and Canvas Art Gallery, On my Visits at Canvas is have heard sizzling in these wires.

    They are supposed to be away from roads and people and if one of these wires snap (0God Forbid) they can cause a lot of damage.

    Sadly our investors often overlook these safety concerns. :(

    Welcome Jamash. This is true welcome note because you have been here on KMB[not like other new authors].

    Do one thing, write a note to editorial of Dawn, Daily times, Jang about it. Fax a note to city council , Dictator President and then pray to Allah that He keeps safe all of us. If you can’t do then you have no right in raising finger to any problem. Do your part atleast my friend and then wait for results.

    Poo poo head is right. Please write to DAWN about the issue. It deserves some attention.

    Ohh. I am not gonna sit on those. They seem close enough to the high tension wires to be a major hazard.
    I wonder who allowed this project to go through.
    Man, some people would just do anything to make money. Its sad, we cant even get good Ginger in pakistan.
