Lansdowne Bridge may become a heritage site


ISLAMABAD: The National Highway Authority has urged the authorities concerned to declare the 127-year-old Lansdowne Bridge in Sukkur district of Sindh a national heritage site, The Express Tribune has learnt.

At the same time, the NHA has approved a feasibility report to construct another bridge on the Indus River to connect Sukkur with Rohri town at an estimated cost of Rs6.5 billion to share the traffic load of Lansdowne Bridge.


According to documents available with The Express Tribune, the bridge, which is known for its fabled beauty, has become unsafe for travelling.

The lifespan of Lansdowne Bridge (inaugurated on March 25, 1889 and considered as world’s largest span continuous rigid frame box girder bridge) has almost ended. Notwithstanding, the traffic volume on the bridge is constantly increasing.

“The bridge is not in a condition to bear an increasing (load of traffic). It might give in anytime resulting in some mishap. Therefore, there is a dire need to construct a new bridge to shift the burden of traffic on an immediate basis,” say the documents.

NHA spokesman Kashif Zaman told The Express Tribune that a number of sites with great archaeological and religious significance exist along Lansdowne Bridge.


“The new Sukkur-Rohri bridge will also serve to promote tourism by providing a smooth route to all historical sites such as Sadhu Bela that holds the sacred Sikh Gurdwara of Guru Nanak Dev Ji and Teerath Asthan, the largest Hindu Temple in Pakistan, without having any kind of traffic congestions.”

The Sukkur-Rohri bridge will be the first cable-stayed bridge in the country with a length stretching about 0.85km.

Zaman further said that they were hiring a consultant for a detailed design of the bridge after which its PC-1 would be presented before the NHA executive board for approval.

According to the documents, the feasibility study would cost around Rs60 million whereas approximately Rs300 million will be required for its detailed designing. “These are initial estimates,” Zaman said.

Did this ever get constructed or just on paper like most PPP projects?

World Bank Announces $300 Million for 2 Sindh Projects

The World Bank’s Board of Executive Directors approved US$300 million in financing for two projects in Pakistan—the Sindh Resilience Project and the Solid Waste Emergency and Efficiency Project.

These investments will bolster Pakistan’s efforts to build resilience to natural hazards such as floods and droughts in the Sindh province and strengthen solid waste management in Karachi to tackle recurrent urban flooding and public health emergencies in the city.

The US$200 million Sindh Resilience Project Additional Financing will help the government better manage climate and disaster risks, including floods, droughts, and public health emergencies. The project will strengthen linkages between disaster risk management and the health sector by establishing the Sindh Emergency Service to enhance the capacity for disaster preparedness and emergency response, including health crises such as COVID-19.

The project also improves irrigation infrastructure to protect vulnerable communities living in rural areas, which will directly benefit 750,000 citizens in drought-prone areas of Kirthar range hills and the Nagarparkar region in the Tharparkar District

Thar Coal Power Generation Saved Pakistan $78 Million: Murad Ali Shah
Sindh Chief Minister, Syed Murad Ali Shah, has said that the use of indigenous Thar Coal, instead of imported coal, for power generation, has resulted in a saving of $78 million foreign exchange for the country.

“By procession toward `Economy of scale’ Thar coal prices are reducing from initial $58 per ton to $32 per ton and with further expansion, the prices will reduce even further,” said the CM while presiding over a Thar Coal and Energy Board (TCEB) meeting at the CM House, Karachi.
By further expansion to 15 mtpa or more, Thar coal prices will further reduce by 50 percent, and Thar Coal Tariff (at around 5.5 US cent per kWh) will be the cheapest baseload in the country, he informed.

He said that Thar Coal Mining Block-II, phase-I was a 3.8 mtpa project and has been commissioned on July 10, 2019. It has extracted over six million tons of coal so far
