Shah asks Frontier Works Organisation to ensure proper diversions as it upgrades Super Highway
Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah has said that he has been working hard to carry out development projects all over the province, stressing that only starting uplift works is not his objective and he wants to ensure quality and timely completion of the projects.
This he said while addressing a gathering organised to inaugurate a Frontier Works Organisation (FWO) public school and a trauma centre at Duma Goth located on the Super Highway, four kilometres from Toll Plaza, on Wednesday. Governor Dr Ishratul Ebad Khan was also present on the occasion.
Shah said the FWO was playing important role in the development of the province and constructing or upgrading the Super Highway to a motorway. “We have given them the K- IV project, which the FWO has started at six years’ old cost and completing it within two years of record period instead of four years. This would be their great contribution,” he said.
The chief minister said the school he and Governor Khan had inaugurated jointly would be a game changer in the education sector by providing quality education in rural areas of Karachi.
He said the trauma centre on the Super Highway was badly needed where there was no suitable facility to provide medical treatment to those who were injured in road accidents. “The centre is properly equipped with the latest gadgets to provide complete health facilities to the villagers, including ladies, living near the Super Highway,” he said.
The chief minister said he was working to improve all the roads of Karachi and beautify important roundabouts, apart from providing the necessary facilities to the people of the city.
He said that due to the reconstruction of the Super Highway, the ratio of road accidents had increased considerably. He urged the NHA to construct diversions properly.
Earlier, the chief minister, along with the governor, inaugurated FWO Model School and Trauma Centre and planted a sapling.
Later, Shah, along with DG FWO Major General Afzal and Chief Secretary Siddique Memon, took an aerial view of the K-IV bulk water supply project.
