  NH-5 Construction awaiting Sewerage line works by KWSB. Mayor Karachi  
  Mayor Karachi Wasim Akhtar said the Chief Minister Sindh should take notice of this that construction of National Highway (N-5) was delayed due to no sewerage work from Malir Kala Board to Malir 15 and citizens were suffering on this main artery. Construction work of this road is not possible till the completion of sewerage and drainage work in this area. Water and sewerage bard has been informed repeatedly about this but so far no work was started for laying of sewerage pipe lines. He said this while chairing a meeting on the construction of National Highway (N-5) on Saturday which was attended by the Works committee chairman Hasan Naqvi, Finance committee Nadeem Hidayat Hashmi, Director general Works Shahab Anwer, Director technical S.M Shukaib, chief engineer, project director and other concerned officers. Mayor Karachi said the water and sewerage board was not performing its duties and sewerage water accumulated in different areas lof Karachi. Citizens are now asking this question that when they would get rid of their sewerage and water related problems. He said with our limited resources whatever roads and streets hav been carpeted by KMC were also beginning to get affected with the sewerage overflow. sewerage over flow can be seen in Nazimabad, North Nazimabad, Ranchoreline, Manzoor Colony, Korangi, PECHS, Karachi Administration Society, Kashmiri Muhalla, Model Colony, Malir 15 and other many areas of Karachi and residents were having great trouble due to this situation. He siad the road from Malir Kala Board to Malir 15 flyvoer was suffering due to sewerage overflow and it has become very hard for vehicles to use this route. Director General Works in a briefing said that due to overflowing of sewerage water from Malir Kala Board to Malir 15 Flyover, 450 meter road carpeting in this project of rehabilitation/reconstruction of National Highway (N-5) from Jinnah Terminal to Quaidabd cannot be carried out till KWSB carried out the sewerage line work. He said so far construction of 1.3km Road from Star Gate to Jinnah Flyover has been completed besides installation of 2 pedestrian bridges, 4 dedicated U Turn, Shifting of utilities of PTCL, K-Electric, Pak Railways, Footpath paving, New Jersey Barriers whereas 85% work of Storm water Drain and 80% work of Footpath has also been completed. Mayor Karachi said those who were blaming KMC for delay in the construction of this road was against the facts as the actual reason was sewerage line repairing and maintenance which is to be done by KWSB which is controlled by the Sindh Government. He said he request the Chief Minister of Sindh to make the KWSB bound to complete the sewerage work of the NH-5 without delay so that remaining construction work of this highway could be completed. He said KMC knew the importance of this corridor and the problems facing by the people due to present situation.
