KARACHI: A part of the Abdul Sattar Edhi flyover in the metropolis was found to be damaged on Thursday.

Development projects in Karachi seldom see the light of day and are often delayed due to lack of funds or other reasons.

The recently constructed Abdul Sattar Edhi flyover at the Karachi Board Office was found to be damaged from one side. A huge pit had formed on one side of the flyover, which is constructed between the Orange and Green Line projects.

The construction company which worked on the Green Line project blamed the Water Board for the mishap.

A staggering amount of Rs 1 billion has been spent on the construction of the flyover. A temporary solution has been implemented as the pit has been filled.

Managing Director of Water Board, Hashim Raza Zaidi, rejected the accusations leveled by the construction company when contacted by SAMAA TV.

"We are not to blame for the deterioration of the flyover," he said. "The construction company that worked on the project should have scrutinized it in detail," he added.

Hashim Raza Zaidi said that before constructing the flyover, the company should have checked whether or not the water and gas lines underneath the flyover were damaged.
