The PIDC bridge holds immense historic significance and is also known as the Chand Mari. The bridge has been there since pre-partition times, over the years it has played a key role in Karachi’s development. The initial purpose of the bridge was to bridge the gap between the new warehouses and the commercial areas. Whereas, today it is used as a major road to incorporate vehicular traffic.
The designers who have refurbished the bridge tried to restore the bridge to its former glory. Advisor to Chief Minister of Sindh Murtaza Wahab Siddiqui shared his views at the inauguration,
“There are a handful of pre-partition bridges in Karachi that are still going strong and have tremendous cultural significance. This hard-wearing bridge has been renovated by the government of Sindh through a public-private partnership in an attempt to modernise and beautify Karachi. I am thankful to Engro for spearheading this renovation project. The people’s government has a long track of delivering many such projects in the city year on year and I am hopeful that in the months ahead we will provide more such projects to the residents of Karachi.”
