Sukkur: According to a recent report, on Wednesday, the Sindh High Court (SHC) has ordered the construction of a new bridge over the Indus River between the two cities, Sukkur and Rohri.
Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Khursheed Shah had filed a petition at Sukkur circuit bench of the high court, seeking construction of a new bridge over Indus, as Sukkur’s iconic Lansdowne Bridge has been in a shambles.
The officials of the National Highway Authority (NHA) were also present during the court hearing. The bench directed the officials to prepare a feasibility report for the new bridge within two months. It may be noted that the high court’s Sukkur bench had earlier taken up a constitutional petition seeking proper upkeep of the Lansdowne Bridge.
Advocate Sohail Memon, a resident of Sukkur, had moved a petition stating that the bridge constructed over the River Indus and connects Sukkur with Rohri, is part of the country’s historic heritage but unfortunately, was in shambles due to several years of neglect.
