Karachi, May 17, 2012 (PPI-OT): KMC Administrator Muhammad Hussain Syed has said that mass transit system was compulsory for Karachi as this would give the only solution for traffic related problems in the mega city. Considerable progress was made on the Karachi Circular Railway Project under cooperation of Provincial Government and its practical implementation was expected to be there for citizens in September 2013. He said this while addressing a delegation of 43 under training assistant commissioners from various cities of Sindh on their visit to Civic Center.

Administrator Karachi said the city population had exceeds 20 million mark and hundreds of new vehicles coming on to the roads everyday. Besides having a well planned mass transit system in Karachi we also need to work on the disposal of garbage on scientific basis. He said KMC was fulfilling its responsibility in various sectors under its administrative control.
These includes health and medical services, fire brigade, works and services, parks and horticulture, mass transit, information technology and education. The administrative control of the city was shared by many organizations including Sindh Revenue Board, PIA, KPT and Cantonment Boards and their mutual coordination and consultancy was essential for the city.
