KARACHI: The construction of pedestrian bridge at Shaheed-e-Millat Expressway Road near PAF Chapter School in Baloch Colony has been cancelled due to the presence of extra high-tension wires.

The pedestrian bridge was a much needed project at the site as a large number of school children as well as their parents and other citizens have to cross the roads where heavy traffic ply posing threat to the lives of people. The road daily gets jammed in the morning and afternoon specially due to wandering of children.

It was a Rs2.84 million project that had been approved for construction. However, it was later decided to be cancelled because of no prior study on the project.

Senior Director Transport and Communication Department Muhammad Athar told PPI on Monday that however the project was in agenda to be constructed but there seemed no possibility because of presence of extra high-tension wires hanging low on the road. The shifting of the wires could not be possible.

The senior director could not give the solution to the troubles in absence of the pedestrian bridge.
