LAHORE - The City District Government Lahore (CDGL) had failed to maintain a public welfare project of placement of wooden benches especially at the bus stops along Jail Road, Shahra e Quaid-i-Azam and the adjoining roads, Pakistan Today learnt on Thursday. The project was meant to facilitate the bus travelers to wait in the shade. Before this, the passengers had to stand under the scorching sun and heavy rains waiting long for buses and other vehicles. But it’s an unfortunate fact that the CDGL had no plan to maintain the newly built bus stops. The sheer ignorance had caused serious damage to the facility as some criminal elements had broken wooden benches and also the sheds. When contacted, a CDGL official said there were complaints of damaged wooden benches at various bus stops and ensured that the same would be repaired soon.
