BADIN/KARACHI: While the first winter showers in Karachi clogged many of the city’s roads and streets, creating difficulties for commuters, roads in Bahria Town Karachi remained clean and free of puddles.
As seen in the pictures above, no rainwater accumulated on Bahria Town streets, allowing commuters to travel hassle-free – a testament to Bahria Town’s superlative forward planning and design.
Meanwhile, the rains exposed the incompetence of Karachi authorities as streets all over the city were inundated and power supply was suspended in several areas. Because of the city’s drainage systems being choked, several areas – especially those where construction work is ongoing – have become virtually impossible to traverse for commuters.
