Mayor Karachi Wasim Akhtar demanded on Wednesday that the provincial authorities halt the construction of above 100 skyscrapers in the city, as it would grimly affect the already fragile civic infrastructure.
The mayor requested the chief minister to stop builders from constructing giant structures across the city as already Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah demanded adequate water supply to Karachi and the rest of Sindh, in this case the issuance of NOC’s to more than 100 high-rise buildings in the city would counter the vision of the chief minister. NOCs could be issued for building high-rises in those areas where the available infrastructure could withstand the expected pressure. Instead of allowing the tall buildings to be built, better infrastructure, efficient solid waste management, good transport system and parking spaces should be made available, he added.
Mayor said not only sewage and water mains were in pathetic condition, but the rest of the city`s infrastructure was in similar condition. In this situation, he said, the chief minster should stop the Sindh Building Control Authority and other related bodies in Karachi from issuing NOCs. The NOCs which had already been issued be cancelled, he added.
Or else the city`s infrastructure would be damaged beyond repair and civic life would be badly affected, said the Karachi mayor. The city mayor said the Supreme Court had also showed its displeasure over the existing solid waste management in Karachi.
He also said that it was noticed that warehouses were being constructed in parking spaces of buildings, while cars were being parked on streets, with the result that snarl-ups had become common. He said the city`s infrastructure was already overburdened because of the construction of buildings on the plots which were originally meant for one or two families.
