Talk of the town

Roads all dug up in the city, those that are not, make sure to let one have a roller coaster ride.

Another diversion observed at Hassan Square before SSGC’s building and it takes approximately 45 minutes to get out of the jam in peak hours.
Will this road construction take forever? Is there anything that can be done by us, the poor citizens?
Should we really start praying for Karachi to be the Capital city? (Having visited Isb and seen the not-at-all bumpy roads there)
Are we intending to move ahead or what??

    You live in Karachi? If yes, Im astonished at you having no woes about the dug up roads and teh traffic jams.
    In any case you have not gone through any such situation, try to reach Gulshan from the road heading from National Stadium towards Hasan Square and you will know what I mean by roads.

    Unaiza, Haseeb was being ironic. What roads?! Meaning Karachi doesn’t have any roads left. They’re all dug up.

    Haye, stop complaining guys. Iss cheez ka bhi aik apna maza hai :D how boring it is to have clean & tidy roads . . driving is so predictable and not at all enjoyable. Love karachi roads :D

    hehehhe! I’m sorry Haseeb, if that was the case :-) You can put it on the pathetic drive on these roads :-)
    And thanks Kidal for the clarifications so required:-)
    IllusionFS: you are so right:-) How would we feel driving on those roads if they are mended up nicely :-D Point to ponder!

    I was wondering what would have happened to our roads if we have snowfall in Khi.

    I simply love the way ILLUSIONFS has put things from other angle.Great one dude.Really…”ss cheez ka bhi aik apna maza hai ”

    If anyone wants to see what TORA BORA is like, he can try Karachi roads.

    @Khitorpit : Isi liye hi nahin hoti baraf bari yahan:) Agar roads achi hoti tu ho jati;)

    @MB: TORA BORA hheheh now I know what it would be like but still, what’s that? :-D

    Cmon yaar, atleast they are doing something….. albiet slow but imagine what it’d be like if all these projects wouldn’t have gotten the green light. Atleast now we can look forward to driving peacefully without getting stuck in traffic once all these underpasses and flyovers are completed.

    The Hasan Square flyover is to be completed in December, or so they say…

    i dont get how the hassan square fly over will work. or maybe i m getting confused .
    but like if i wanted to go to say aga khan from nipa using the national stadium road hw will i get there?
    i mean apart from the diversions . i mean really how?

  12. Umer Zaman (unregistered) on November 1st, 2006 @ 11:26 am

    these things will take time
    and theres nothin that can be done about that
    i think another 2 years, we’ll have good roads.. ofcourse if it doesnt rain again =)

  13. Zag (unregistered) on November 2nd, 2006 @ 9:46 am

    Sooban: You drive under the flyover and make a right turn…… also, there’s an underpass underneath the national stadium flyover which will take you from the aga khan road toward Dalmia road….

    yes for ur info !

    the new diversion while coming to hasan sqaure from times medico.. .. ppl seem to follow the main flow that is they trun left at mashrique center n take the U turm from the first cut .. then baq to through the same way.. .

    if u move further In ..u`ll C on the right a big ground. ( this is wht was previously the Water Hydrant) move right then u`ll find a road next to a small mosque .. this leads directly to civic center..

    this route almost saved my ATleast 25 mins in the traffic jam at ssgc head office !
