Karachi: Broken road grill of main University Road right under the NIPA flyover has been resulting in road accidents, but the civic authorities are yet to repair the broken grill and save human lives.
The iron grill separating two flanks of the road had went broken six months back and people instead of using nearby pedestrian bridge are crossing this dangerously busy road from this gap and road accidents here are routine. However, the Gulshan e Iqbal District Municipal Corporation has yet to repair the broken grill.
The citizens have demanded from the Gulshan e Iqbal District Municipal Corporation to erect concert wall or use long Jersey barriers to ensure that pedestrians cannot cross the road and be compelled to use the nearby pedestrian bridge. Moreover, Jersey barriers should be placed between the two flanks of the road just opposite the NIPA Institute so that the bikers cannot not use these dangerous shortcuts and instead use the nearby flyover.
