Sindh CM inaugurates new road along Sandspit beach

KARACHI: Sindh Chief Minister (CM) Syed Murad Ali Shah on Saturday inaugurated the newly constructed Sandspit Road along the city’s scenic coastline.

Speaking at the inauguration ceremony of the road, he said it was built at a cost of Rs456 million and will facilitate picnickers who flock to the beach for recreational purposes.

He also announced that a parking lot where at least 200 vehicles can be parked is also being built while adjoining roads would be constructed soon.

In addition to the road, he added, a concrete wall has been erected along it to stop sea intrusion.

He regretted that Manora, a famous picnic spot, had been deserted for so long due to a lack of facilities.

The chief minister maintained that the provincial government has been working for the uplift of the port city and vowed to make the newly formed Keamari district a model one.

Earlier, Sindh government spokesperson Murtaza Wahab tweeted: “CM #Sindh will be inaugurating the Sandspit Road today. Besides the road infrastructure, mobile toilets have also been placed for the benefit of commuters. Design work is also going on for the main Hawksbay Road so that the road infrastructure all the way to the beach is improved.”
