Karachi, April 02, 2014 (PPI-OT): Administrator Karachi Rauf Akhtar Farooqui has said that the lack of inter-departmental coordination was the reason for overnight cutting of roads which caused heavy loss to infrastructure. This situation could be changed with the implementation of development activities under master plan and by ensuring full and thorough coordination among the concerned organizations. Shafiq Morr road was being widened and a flyover will also be constructed at this junction.
He expressed these views while speaking in the meeting held in the office of North Karachi Association of Trade and Industry which was attended by Chairman of NKATI Mehmood Rangoonwala, Patron In Chief Noor Ahmed Khan, Chief Executive Syed Usman, Chairman of North Karachi Industrial Area Development and Management Committee Ashraf Jamil, Director General Engineering KMC Niaz Ahmed Soomro, Chief Engineer Asadullah Shah, Chief Engineer Khalid Masroor and other officers.

Administrator Rauf Akhtar Farooqui said development process in Karachi was continuing and the industrial zones of the city will also get infrastructure development projects.
