Karachi †: †The KMC will provide every possible support in the establishment of emergency response centre and installation of video surveillance cameras on Mehran Highway and other important roads so that most parts of the city could be linked with the central command and control system.

Administrator KMC Syed Hashim Raza Zaidi said this while talking to a delegation of Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), led by Tomishige, who called on him at the KMC office on Tuesday.

He said that Japanís experiments and expertise could be availed in the installation of CCTV cameras, drainage system, cleanliness of nullahs and solid waste management system and in other sectors as well.

On the occasion, the JICA delegation members reviewed the security improvement project of Mehran Highway and gave their recommendations in this regard. They were of the view that security surveillance cameras should be installed at appropriate distance on Mehran Highway and an emergency response centre should be established where prompt help could be provided in case of any emergency or incident.

The KMC Administrator said that the Mehran Highway project being constructed with the collaboration of JICA would prove to be an ideal project to perform a vital role in the development of the city.

The five kilometres Phase-II of Mehran Highway is being constructed with the collaboration of JICA at a cost of Rs 450 million after the Phase-I of the project was completed at a cost of Rs 300 million.

A storm water drain with RCC ceiling is also being constructed along the highway for prompt drainage of rainwater and after completion this project will provide a wide road in the industrial area of the city.
