Rebuilding it, trench by trench

I’ve been meaning to post about this since I saw this on Sunday but mundane tasks got in the way. So here it is. Reconstruction has started in Clifton, one of the worst hit areas of last year’s rainstorms. They have dug up huge trenches starting from Gulf Way, Teen Talwar right up to the underpass. Next step is to lay down the drainage pipes and hopefully by this monsoon we’ll be all set. While commuting everyday, I have yet to see anyone actually working on site but I hope its only because I have caught them at a bad time (12:00 pm on Monday?).

No seriously, I’m so glad that some action is finally taking place to avoid the Venetian crises of last year. Now at least our Lahori friends won’t ask us if we drowned in the underpass. Here’s to getting up and rebuilding your losses one huge trench at a time. Cheers!

    My apologies for not mentioning Mansoor’s coverage on the same topic here:

    In my defense though, I’d say that the trenches were dug up only this week so I still find this relevant. kplissthnks.

    Ah! my city… of trenches….

    By the way, are you absolutely sure that the CDGK are not digging up this trench to built another underpass. I mean, you never can tell what goes on in our city-leaders’ minds.

    Saqib , these people support MQM which is party in pakistan’s democratic system… it is their right to express and work for MQM… now back off and go vote for / support whoever you want to… obviously most likely you don’t even vote….

    When Pakistanis are abroad, they are ambassadors of the country. They should have Pakistan flags as the Pakistan team is playing. Were an MQM team playing cricket against South Africa, MQM flags would have been okay. Lets keep ‘democracy’ in perspective and maintain some semblance of unity.
