KARACHI: Nisar Ahmed Khan, President S.I.T.E. Superhighway Association of Industry, has expressed grave concern over the waste of thousands of gallons of precious water on a daily basis.
The main freshwater supply line passing through beneath the main entrance, the intersection of the industrial area has been deliberately broken by some elements for their personal gains. The officials of KW&SB are also overlooking the issue for many years by not taking corrective measures.

The criminal elements also taking advantage of the situation and deprive of people their valuables almost on daily basis. The high frequency of adverse events has made this road practically impossible to travel on after sunset.
“At the Association level or by the help of some generous industrialists, we have taken repaired measures by our own number of times but due to continuing and unchecked leakage of freshwater all our efforts and money went to waste”, he informed.
SSHAI President further stated that along with our all continue handiwork, efforts, and active pursuance of the problem with the provincial and local governments, we once again are anticipating a ray of hope as the local Government has initiated repair work on this road.
