Problems in Sukkur

January 12, 2018

The third largest city of Sindh, Sukkur, is facing so many problems. The majority of mega projects that the present government started five years back have not been completed so far. Flyovers and bridges have failed to control the traffic problems. There is no traffic management plan to accommodate the rapid increase in transportation and private vehicles.

The city’s municipal arrangements are also inadequate. The garbage on the streets cannot be lifted because there is no effective local governance system. The city is facing water shortages in almost all areas. Drainage and water seepage have destroyed old roads. Residents cannot afford to adopt a negligent attitude towards these issues anymore. The government should take strong and effective measures to cope with the chronic issues clouded over the city.
