SEPA Permits Malir Expressway

by M. Wasim

The Sindh Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA) has granted approval to the controversial Malir Expressway project without taking into account genuine concerns of area residents and experts over the environmental impact assessment (EIA) report.

Developed via public-private partnership, the project will link the city’s affluent areas with the newer gated societies emerging on the city’s outskirts.

The project, according to local residents, environmentalists  & urban experts would lead to demolition of old villages, deprive people of their homes, agricultural land and destroy heritage and religious sites as well as biodiversity of the area.
