Frozen projects

While there are many new projects being developed around the city, there are some that have seen no progress for a long while. One such project is the flyover being constructed in Landhi area. I passed that spot last night after many months and it showed no progress whatsoever. The incomplete structure of the bridge is just adding to the traffic problems that triggered its construction at first place. How ironic!

Are there any other frozen projects that you are aware of?

    There’s Alamgir Road, near Bahadurabad that I’m aware of…seems completely stagnant. The dug it up and it’s been like that for a year now.

    Yes, Bahadurabad has been a total mess since forever it seems! No visible signs of progress there. Also, the work on the Quaidabad flyover seems to be going on at a snail’s pace.

    Yes, its a project of Water Park in Block-C of North Nazimabad, in between Intermediate Board office and Shipowner college. It was inaugurated by last CDGK government lead by Nematu-llah. The boundry was build along with a sign board of Water Park but since then i have seen nothing happening there. Is it not miserable that CDGK can’t distribute water properly throughout the karachi and planeed to build a water park! Moreover with all those boundries created now pathan childrens from near by mountains lost their play ground also.

    This isn’t a public project, but now that the site of the “Casino” on the beach has been “repurposed”, the dean of unfinished projects has to be the building, or shell, that takes up a corner at the intersection across from the Sheraton, PC and PIDC house…anyone old enough here to remember what it was supposed to be?

    there are two other parks in Block F north nazimabad, Fateh Park opposite Ziauddin Hospital almost 8 acres and left uncompelte(60 % work completed & now work frozen) and another park Alnoor Masjid Park almost 20 acres (40 % compelted and work halted )…

    only reason that i can think of for freezing of funds for these parks by MQM is that they’re both started by Ex Nazim Naimutullah Khan.. and his residence is walking distance from these parks…

    secondly that water park pointed out by @udass was also started by ex Nazim and reason for stopped could be coz MQM lost from Block C Union COuncil so they’ve blocked funds for that UC…
