Sharjeel Inam Memon, Sindh’s Minister of Information, Transportation, and Mass Transit, has declared that Red Line BRT’s bus depot will be built on 10 acres of Aladin Park, a well-known park in Karachi.
The park recently underwent an infrastructure clean-up as part of an anti-encroachment campaign, during which several membership clubs, marriage halls, and over 450 stores were destroyed per the Pakistani Supreme Court’s directive (SCP).
Since then, it has remained off-limits to the general public since the province government plans to renovate it and reopen it as Jinnah Park.
The most significant transportation project in Karachi is the Red Line BRT project. The project will give Karachi’s residents, who have long lacked a modern communications infrastructure, an affordable means of transportation.
