Sindh CM Approves Korangi Crossing Bridge, Hub Canal Rehabilitation Projects

KARACHI: Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah has greenlighted the construction of the Korangi Crossing Bridge and Hub Canal rehabilitation projects on Wednesday.

The chief minister issued these directives while presiding over a meeting to review different projects planned to be launched in the city at the CM House.

“The existing causeway submerges during monsoon seasons, therefore, the people of Korangi and Malir face serious problems,” he said, adding that with the construction of a bridge, 28% of the population of Korangi and Malir would be facilitated.

The CM directed the local government to complete it within a year and start its work on a top-priority basis. “I would provide you funds, just go into tendering,” he said.

CM Murad also greenlighted the Jam Sadiq Bridge project and directed the Planning and Development Department to prepare a scheme to overhaul it. “The launching of the Hub Canal Project would be financed by the government to be completed within a year,” he added.

Moreover, the CM was told that the 65-mgd Bulk Water Supply project would start from Keejhar Gujju Canal to the high point, including the construction of Gharo water pumping stations, which would cost around Rs9 billion.

The chief minister directed the local government department to start the project and arrange the funds. “This city needs water, and we cannot delay water projects,” he said. “Start the tendering process so that work could be started in time.”
