There is a bridge near Hub, it has broken pillars and looks to be moments away from collapse, but is still used by regular traffic.

Please try and see if you can find any updates regarding that, if it is being improved or a new one getting built or anything, that bridge is an accident waiting to happen. I saw it in a video by someone on YouTube. Thanks.
Already repaired and new Hub bypass inagurated.

KARACHI: In line with Pakistan and China’s ambitious development plans for the Port City of Gwadar, inauguration of ‘Gwadar CPEC Warehouses’ (GCW) and ‘Gwadar Commercial Zone’ GCZ) took place on Friday to establish cargo storage facilities and development of office buildings, hotels, markets etc at prime locations adjacent to the new Gwadar International Airport.

The inauguration ceremony was graced by Director General (DG) Gwadar Development Authority (GDA) Shahzeb Khan Kakar with his presence. A number of investors, and real state representatives were also present on the occasion.

Gwadar CPEC Warehouses’ and ‘ Gwadar Commercial Zone are projects of Akbar Group and its marketing is being carried out by the Star Marketing.

Shahzeb Khan Kakar said development work under new Gwadar Master Plan is in full swing, work on planning and legislative fronts has been finalized, while the infrastructure development side will also see progress in days to come.
While appreciating Akbar Group for the fulfilment of its commitments, he vowed to extend his all out support.
He said GDA is in constant touch with ABAD for its micro planning. We don’t want any arbitrary work that would be unacceptable for the stakeholders – the locals, developers, and the investors. “No stakeholder should feel left out in the process of development,” he said.

He said the Chief Minister Balochistan Jam Kamal is the firm believer of taking people on board. On his direction, GDA is conducting public hearings to take recommendation, input of the concerned parties to incorporate them in the development policy.

Up to 80 percent demands of the investors have been incorporated in the master plan.
He said the Master Plan is not something to be kept hidden. Rather the purpose of this document is to ensure economic development along with the human development.

We are trying to declare Gwadar a tax free city. On request of CM Balochistan, legislation has been moved to the Parliament for considerations. It’s the dream of CM Balochistan to see Gwadar like Dubai. He said development is not possible without political will.

Kakar said the city will be developed under the highest of international standards to be an economic hub for the entire region and beyond.

To a query, he said Gwadar Development Authority has decided to revoke the licenses of fake and dubious housing sites, besides taking action against those responsible. The port will become the largest commercial and economic center in South Asia.

According to the new Gwadar Smart City Master Plan, Gwadar’s population will increase rapidly in the long run. The city will require some 15,800 new homes by 2025, 47,600 by 2030 and 254,500 by 2050.

The plan has been implemented in collaboration with the Ministry of Planning and Development, Gwadar Development Authority and China Communications Construction Company. Under the plan, 15,800 new houses will be required in Gwadar city by 2025, which will increase to 47,600 by 2030. On this occasion, Akbar Group founder Akbar Ali thanked the guests from Karachi.

ISLAMABAD: Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan Thursday directed the Fisheries Department to collect data of fish feed mills, besides starting registration of these factories on priority.

An official told APP that the provincial government would formulate fishing policy for the development of fisheries sector and steps would be taken for acquiring modern machinery for processing fish.

The steps would be taken in collaboration with Lasbela University of Agriculture, Water and Marine Sciences to further develop the fisheries sector by availing the services of Marine Science graduates of the varsity.

The chief minister directed to conduct a feasibility study of all jetties. He said the approved projects included construction of two Jetties at Jiwani and Ormara and floating Jetti at Kundmalir, establishment of eight hatcheries and 80 commercial net cultures.

He said the Cage Farming, Mobile Quality Control Laboratory, Establishment of Model Fish Farm, Recirculating Hatchery System, Consumer Fish Processing Facility were also proposed to be developed in next financial year.

The Cage fish farming is an innovative method which can bring production equivalent to about an acre from a space of one marla. The cages are installed in natural water.

The provincial government has decided to introduce new technologies in its fisheries sector to boost its business in the province.

He said the construction of fishing venue has been enforced on the directives of the Chief Minister of Balochistan to boost the untapped sector and provide facilities to the local fishermen.

“The province has a capacity to produce good quality fish and would generate more revenue by providing access to the global market,” he said.

The government would bring improvements in the fisheries department, as the interested entrepreneurs and investors could promote farming in the province purely on commercial basis, he added.

1618757938590.png



" With the exception of eastern side of the Marri-Bugti country, the drainage of the whole this area is carried off by the Nari, which in traversing the Marri country is known as the Beji. On the South it is joined by three considerable hill ********, the Chakar or Talli, the Lahri, and the Chhatr. All of these streams are subject to high floods, especially in July and August. when the fertile lands of Kachhi are irrigated from them." (Imperial Gazetteer of India, v. 22, p. 337, 1908 CE)

Nari River Basin

1. The Nari Basin covers ~20 percent of Balochistan and is the largest river basin in the province.
2. Its stratigraphy is complex with lateral variations in contemporaneous sedimentation across five geological zones and parent geology characterized by zones of convergence and slip faulting.
3. Alluvial deposits in the central and lower parts of the valleys consist of layers of clay, gravel, silt, sand or an admixture of these materials. Mean annual rainfall across the basin varies from 150 to 350 mm.
4. The river terminates in Hamal Lake with periodic overflows into Manchar Lake.
5. There are two important protected areas in the basin: the Ziarat Juniper Biosphere Reserve and Wam Games Reserve.
