helpful in reducing the vehicular traffic. And the people whose workplaces are at adistance they must be provided with public transport.
Dedicated CNG Buses:
This project was started by former City Nazim Mr. MustafaKamal. Basically according this project 4000 CNG bus service was to be started by theCDGK on different routs according to the travel demand, Ticket booths were made atthe bus stops, and bus only stops at the bus stop. Since the buses were bgi enough toaccumulate about 40 to 50 person in a manner that they can reach their destination in arespectful manner. Exclusive terminals were made for theses buses where all theservices related to repair and maintenance was done. The cleanliness, maintenance,repair of buses was made sure by the driver and his helper.I don¶t know what happened than the service was stopped for one month, after onemonth when the service was restarted for the public there were some very bad changesmade in the system, these buses were given to the private sector, the ticket booth systemwas finished, now the bus has traditional ticket collector, and bus stops like mini buseswhere the driver get the passenger no defined bus stops. The result of these changes will be no more different that ws happened with UTS transport service.The government must take action against this privatization and must continue thisservice as it was started by Mr. Mustafa Kamal.
ass Transit System:
We have the railway track laid down by KCR for interconnecting the town. We must start the improved train service for only town to townlevel so tat the time which is spend on travelling can be shorten.
Small Vans and QINGQI (Chinkchi)
We must start servicesmall vans like Hi ace, and QINGQI rickshawas in which 8 to 15 person cantravel very comfortably for the small distances like from residential area tomarket, to residential area to school, university, and colleges etc. it will alsoreduce the vehicular traffic.
Lake of Community:
I will take it with a different angle. In my opinion we must start the new police system that isCommunity Police system, in this system all the staff of the police will of same community(area) where it is deployed, now they people know the problems of their community they willhave to solve it otherwise they will have to face the consequences by the same community.
I will relate this problem with the urban sprawl. Due to very abrupt expenditure of the citymanagement of the city is very difficult and even planed areas are being converted into slums.What I will suggest is that we must go for high rise construction. For example take Liyari Townas Pilot project. For construction in lyari we must have to provide space to the residents of Liyarifor living, in gaddap town we have large open space, if we construct 10 storey apartment buildings in these area according the family size and comfort are like 3 rooms, 4 rooms, 5 rooms,and 6 rooms apartment. Now provide there school, college, hospital parks, and communitycenter. Water supply can be easily provide their because it is near to hub dam, for electricity a
